I am a big fan of oatmeal and I loved it since I was a child. I love the taste, the consistency and how it fills me up in the morning providing me with energy and good nutrition.
But let’s be honest, oatmeal can be a bit boring after a while. This is exactly why I like to experiment with it and try different recipes from time to time. There are so many gorgeous pictures and recipes of oatmeal variations on Pinterest and Instagram, where I usually get my inspiration from. But there is always an ingredient or two that I don’t have at home or don’t particularly like. So eventually I never follow the exact instructions, I only add what I absolutely love and only use the recipes for inspiration and for new ideas.
This is how I came to this ultimate matcha oatmeal. I absolutely love the taste and the fact that it is so healthy! Combining the benefits of matcha with oat is just the right way to start my morning when I have a long and busy day ahead. And when I say long I mean very long: working around 12-14 hours is very demanding, but I need to keep a good and stable energy level throughout the day. The oat fills me up while keeping my blood sugar low and the matcha gives me balanced energy for the next 5-6 hours without the jittery feeling. It helps me to stay focused. And that is one of the most important things that I need when I work.
This oatmeal is the best I made and tried so far, and the only one that I cannot get bored of. Therefore, I thought if something, then this is worth sharing.
If you would also like to “stir up” your breakfast follow this recipe and you will never see oatmeal as a boring food again.
Ingredients for 1 serving
1 gram organic matcha
1/2 cup oats
1 cup milk
Bit of hot water to brew the matcha (70-80°C)
1 tsp vanilla syrup
1/2 cup blueberries
1/4 cup hazelnuts
Heat the water just before it starts to boil. In a small bowl add half a teaspoon (1 gram) of matcha powder (I always use the premium grade, so tasty!) and whisk it with the water for a few seconds until it’s smooth and a bit foamy. Add the milk and the vanilla syrup and whisk it again until the matcha is blended completely. Now add the oat and hazelnuts to the milky matcha and wait about 10 minutes so the oat can soak up the milk. At the end serve it with fresh blueberries or other fruits of your preference.
Spend a mindful moment of gratitude (I do that before every meal) and enjoy your breakfast. You did something good to your body already!
