Nearly Instant Super Seeded Oatmeal {vegan, gluten-free}

This stupid-easy oatmeal takes 10 minutes to make and provides all kinds of healthful, stick-to-your-ribs deliciosity. Inspired by NW Raw's PCT Oatmeal. For a do-ahead option, make the dry mix the night before (or stick it in a jar to bring to work), add the hot milk, garnish, and voilĂ .

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup GF quick oats , (25 g) (or old-fashioned rolled oats for a chunkier oatmeal)
  • 1 tablespoon sliced almonds (or chopped almonds)
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tablespoon dried currants
  • 1 tablespoon dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon flax seeds
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1-3 teaspoons maple syrup , (depending on sweetness of milk)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon (more to taste)
  • big pinch fine sea salt
  • 3/4 cup plant milk , (175 ml) (I use coconut almond milk from Milkman)
  • fresh fruit for topping, preferably with some crunch and acidity (such as chopped green apple or asian pear tossed with a little lemon juice, fuyu persimmon, pomegranate arils, fresh berries, etc.)

Instructions

  • In a cereal bowl or large mug, place the oats, almonds, coconut, currants, cranberries, sunflower, flax, hemp and chia seeds. Sprinkle over the maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and salt.
  • Place the milk in a small saucepan and set over a medium-low flame. Heat gently, swirling occasionally, until the milk is hot and steamy. It's ok if it separates.
  • Pour the hot milk over the oat mixture and whisk to combine. Optionally, let sit 5-10 minutes to thicken. Top with the fruit and a sprinkle of seeds, if you like. Devour.

Notes

Except for the chia and flax, which swell to give this oatmeal thickness and body, the nuts, seeds, and dried fruit aren't set in stone, so feel free to use what you have on hand.
