Nobody has an excuse not to eat breakfast anymore! I woke up this morning excited, but nervous to make these. I wasn’t sure how they were going to turn out. Let’s just say at first bite I knew this had to be shared. This is such a SIMPLE hands-off way to make Oatmeal. Especially for you busy Momma’s out there, or people who have to leave in early in the morning for work. You can make multiple servings at once. PLUS, it’s the best tasting! So creamy and good!
Okay, so here’s how it goes. The night before you’re going to make it (or you can make it at night) put your oats in the rice cooker.
To make it even easier, I measured out my soy milk and set that aside in the fridge too. And, unthawed a few organic frozen berries by sticking the bag in the fridge overnight on a plate (you don’t want anything to drip in your fridge).
Put everything in, mix it together, lid, and turn on.
By everything, I mean:
1¼ cup of Coach’s Oats
3 cups original soymilk
½ cup berries
Let it sit until it clicks. Mine took no more than 25 minutes, and I got to do other things this morning while my breakfast cooked itself. How nice 🙂
25 minutes later, and voila!
Take the pot (using oven-mits) off the rice cooker when it’s done so the bottom doesn’t burn. Stir it up, and serve!
Note: when you first hear your pot click and you open up the rice cooker, it will look like there is a little bit extra liquid. This is okay! Stir it in. That liquid is good for the creaminess and flavor.
I topped mine with walnuts, raisins, and organic unsweetened coconut shreds.
Hey! If you want to make it even easier, just throw the walnuts + raisins in with the mix. I hear that works too!
I was on the phone last night with my FIRST graduated client, and she was telling me about how through my program she fell in-love with her rice-cooker! She makes everything in it. Oatmeal, rice with veggies + fish, quinoa, even cous-cous!
When she told me all of this, I was a bit amazed… when she first started my program, she asked if she could make all grains in her rice-cooker. To be honest, I wasn’t sure. So, I did some research and said “yep! Looks like you can!” Since then, she’s learned to do that, and so much more, and has turned her life around (literally) eating whole grains, healthy greens, and good protein.
Anyways, there’s the story, now please, try the Oats 🙂
Question for all of you who are reading:
