You all know just how much I love my oatmeal, and I wake up every morning ready to have a delicious bowl!
Rolled oats are sometimes underrated, but almost anyone can fit them into a morning routine. Why are they called rolled? Rolled oats are lightly steamed and then put through a roller.
I bought my Quaker® Oats at my local Kroger. My local Krogers have added a huge natural foods section that makes life so convenient for me. I love that I can pick up a large variety of nondairy products without having to take an extra trip to find a specialty store.
Rolled oats are so quick and easy since they cook in only 5 minutes on the stove. I love that! If you grew up on instant oatmeal, you’ll find that Quaker® Old Fashioned Rolled Oats have a slightly chewier texture that is really appealing.
I chose a Middle Eastern flavor profile for my bowl. The main additions are pistachios, dates, and cinnamon. But the agave nectar (or maple syrup) mixed with the orange flower water is really a powerhouse of flavor. Not only does it add sweetness, but the flower aroma will brighten up your whole day.
- 1¾ cup water or unsweetened nondairy milk
- 1 cup Quaker® Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
- pinch salt, optional
- ¼ cup agave nectar (or substitute maple syrup)
- ½ teaspoon orange flower water (or substitute rose water)
- ¼ cup chopped pistachios (or substitute cashews)
- ¼ cup chopped dates
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon (or substitute cardamon)
- Bring the water to a boil then add the Quaker® Old Fashioned Rolled Oats and cook for about 5 minutes or until the oatmeal has absorbed the water and the oats are tender. If you'd like, stir in a pinch of salt.
- Add the orange flower water to the agave nectar and mix well.
- Divide the cooked oats into 2 bowls and divide the pistachios and dates between them. Drizzle the orange flower water and agave mixture over the top - just use the amount you like to sweeten your oats with. You can always save any leftovers for next time. Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon and enjoy!
