This is a quick and simple organic oatmeal recipe that is very creamy and has a hint of naughty by using some vanilla bean and spices! There is no better recipe to cook on a late autumn morning. Take time with the family and make this easy and very tasty oatmeal before you hit the day.
Here's a list of what you'll need:
- 2 cups of Bob's Red Mill Extra Thick Rolled Oats
- 1 cup of whole organic milk
- 1/2 cup of organic half and half
- 1/2 cup of organic cream
- 1 Tablespoon of organic butter
- 1 Tablespoon of organic vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon of organic almond extract
- 1 vanilla bean scraped paste from the bean
- 1/2 teaspoon of stevia
- 1/4 cup of organic dark brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of organic freshly ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon of organic fresh ground nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon of organic ground cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon of organic sea salt
Other ingredient options:
- Pumpkin (1/2 cup canned or homemade organic pumpkin puree)
- Dried Cranberries
- Dried apples
- Chopped nuts
- Chocolate Chips
- Chia Seeds
- Flax Seeds
Bring the milk, half and half, and cream to high simmer, but not fully boiling on the stove top using a medium-low to medium heat. Stir the milk mixture every so often when bringing it to a simmer. Once it is simmering add the oats and salt.
Stir the oats in and let the mixture come to a boil. Again, remember to stir so often, as you don't want the bottom to start to burn. Let simmer for about 5 minutes.
At this point turn down the heat to low or just a little above low. Cover and let cook for about 5 minutes.
Add vanilla and almond extracts. Stir in butter.
Now add the vanilla bean paste, stevia, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Stir generously. If you want to add any of the above optional ingredients now is the time to add. Stir.
Put the lid back on and let sit on low heat for about 10 minutes. Longer if needed.
Serve nice and warm with optional toppings if desired.
