I love the flavour of gingerbread cookies; so warming and comforting. It translates nicely to a big, warm bowl of oats. I use my typical method for cooking oats quickly here; what I typically do on a workday morning. Stovetop method would work as well if you’ve got more time. I add chia seeds to my oats because I love the texture it provides, plus it’s high in a bunch of good stuff.
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
2 tsp chia seeds
Enough water or non-dairy milk to cover oats
1 tsp molasses
1 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
Pinch of ground cloves
Pinch of nutmeg
Pinch of salt
Place oats and chia seeds in a bowl and add enough liquid to saturate and cover. Let stand for 5 minutes. Pop in microwave on high for 2 minutes or until oats are tender and have absorbed most of the liquid. Add molasses, brown sugar and salt and mix. Add spices and mix some more. Eat and feel comforted and warm.
