This gingerbread oatmeal is so delicious. It’s perfect for a late fall or a cold winter morning, or a special breakfast to make during the Holidays. It’s relatively easy and quick to make although it will require the minimum of preparation. But oatmeal is quick to cook so you will have a breakfast in less than 15-20 minutes.
I’m not sure if it’s something your children will like as there are a variety of spices, but if you like warming spices like cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves, you should enjoy this warming and grounding breakfast. The recipe serves one but feel free to double if you like.
What’s in the Oatmeal?
- Rolled oats (take gluten-free if sensitive to gluten)
- Pumpkin pie spice
- Coconut sugar
- Pink salt
- Nondairy milk (oat, coconut or almond)
What About Toppings?
This is what I put on mine and it was absolutely delicious:
- Sliced banana
- Cashew butter (store-bought or homemade)
- Blackstrap molases
- Chocolate chips or raw cacao nibs
Benefits of Unsulphured Blackstrap Molasses
Unsulphured molasses is made from cane sugar and is vegan and gluten-free. It has a rich, full-bodied robust flavour, and is very rich in iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium. It’s one of the healthiest sweeteners.
No Pumpkin Spice?
Use 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon ginger, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg and a very small pinch of cloves.
