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 powder
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
How to prepare matcha oatmeal
- Heat the water until 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 to the matcha mixture and whisk it again until it is blended completely.
- Now add the oat and hazelnuts to the milky matcha and wait about 10 minutes so the oats 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!
