Stove Top Oats Without a Stove?
A while back (well it seems like a while back, it was probably only a few weeks) I posted a recipe for rice cooker French toast oats. I had some requests (heyy Jessica!) for a rice cooker recipe with traditional ingredients.
Lo, rice cooker rolled oats.
Now there is no excuse to use a microwave for oatmeal. Maybe I’m just bitter because I can’t figure out how to microwave oats without exploding the kitchen?
This is a fix it and forget it kind of breakfast, which makes it perfect for busy mornings. Just throw the ingredients in the cooker and crank it up!
Rice Cooker Oatmeal
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 tbsp honey OR 1/2 banana, sliced thinly
- 1 tbsp chia seeds OR 1 tbsp flax seeds
- 2/3 c almond milk
- 1/3 c + 2 T water
- Dash of salt
- Cinnamon, to taste.
Combine all ingredients in a rice cooker but the 2 T of water and salt.
Cook for 10 minutes.
Turn to warm and add the water and salt. Stir, then serve.
Yes, it can be that easy.
Plese don’t forget about Cook’s Mission this week! I know everyone’s busy, but don’t be afraid to stop by and vote. 🙂
Today I had the best workout with my friend Sasha (Hi Sasha!)… We raced on the bikes for 30 minutes [Not sure what course it was, but it was intense! We were so sweaty!] and then we played boot camp with ab exercises and free weights. [lots of squats, lunges, calf raises]
I love having a workout buddy! I wish I always had a friend to motivate me while I’m working out. It’s so much fun to change it up. 🙂
Do you have a workout buddy?
Easter’s coming! Easter’s coming! I have tomorrow off from work (because Jessica is awesome) so I’m actually going to get a chance to shop at the Farmers’ Market I work at!
Also on the agenda:
- The Italian imports store for lasagna ingredients
- The supermarket for a few components of my secret cheesecake.
CleaningStrolling around Saratoga and then telling my parents I got caught by a train 😉
Are you enjoying the amazing weather??
