When the mornings are chilly, try this yummy recipe for Rice Cooker Oatmeal. Â I was inspired by eating some yummy oatmeal one morning at Jamba Juice and chased down a recipe online and then made it my own. Â Feel free to make this recipe your own and enjoy in health! Â P.S. Â I like having this for dinner occasionally!
- 1 2/3 C Almond Milk (plain or vanilla) You can also use regular milk or soy milk.
- 2/3 C Steel cut oatmeal (I like Coach’s available at Costco)
- 1 T ground flax seed
- 2 T pure maple syrup
- 1 t (or to taste) cinnamon
- Pinch of sea salt
- Handful of dried apples crunched up into smaller pieces Â (with or without cinnamon — I like Bare fruit available at Costco) but you can use any dried fruit you prefer
- 1 t vanilla
Mix in your favorite rice cooker and cook. Â My rice cooker is very simple and I just push down the button and come back to lovely oatmeal. Â With the more sophisticated models you may find you have to experiment with settings. Â You can top with raisins and a little brown sugar and a dollop of almond milk. Â Note: If using Vanilla Almond Milk reduce or eliminate the vanilla and maple syrup. Â It’s a little too sweet for me that way.
I start this in the morning and then go work out. Â How cool is it to smell the cinnamon wafting through the house! Â Enjoy!
