I haven’t posted an oatmeal recipe in a while. I’ve recently gone back to steel-cut oats to switch it up from my traditional and usually stock old-fashioned oats. I also have an important PSA: if you don’t have a milk frother, go out and buy one. It’s life-changing. That’s a gross hyperbole, but I have noticed I’m quite excited every morning before my cup of coffee. I’ve been using one by Nepresso that does both cold and hot foam. Full disclosure that I received this as a present, but it’s wonderful nonetheless. Adding frothed vanilla almond milk interestingly tastes like marshmallows. While not a “latte” in a traditional sense, Cinnamon Oatmeal Latte are a delicious alternative to your sweet or savory oats, and another way to invigorate your morning.
Ingredients (serves 1).
- 1/4 c steel cut oats *
- Dash of cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
- 1 T burcha (optional)
- 1 T cinnamon protein powder (optional)
- 1/4 c strongly brewed coffee *
- 1/2 c unsweetened vanilla almond milk + extra to froth *
- 1 t maple syrup or sweetened to taste (optional)
- Coconut flakes and cinnamon sugar to top
* NOTE: if you prefer old fashioned oats, use 1/2 c oats to 3 T coffee to 1/3 c almond milk.
- In a microwavable bowl, combine oats, cinnamon, salt, burcha, protein powder and mix well. Pour almond milk and coffee over oats and stir.
- Heat the oatmeal according to package directions. (Heat in the microwave on 50% power for 2 min and then for an additional 3 min on high power. You may need to adjust the time depending on the type of oats used, i.e. steel-cut vs old-fashioned.)
- Top with frothed almond milk and drizzle with extra coffee and maple syrup. Sprinkle with coconut and cinnamon sugar.
- Serve immediately and enjoy!
