Warm, sweet and creamy, the almond butter oatmeal is a delicious morning treat that incorporates all my favorite flavors of fall like sweet potato, maple syrup and pecans.
How do you like to prepare your oatmeal?
With maple syrup and brown sugar? With cinnamon? With Fruit? Or maybe Savory?
I love oatmeal because there are so many ways you can eat them. I also love it because it’s associated with heart health, lowered cholesterol, blood sugar, obesity and digestive health.
And because it’s so high in fiber, it keeps you full longer.
Now that fall is officially here I’ve been craving oatmeal again, and this quick and easy recipe has been all I’ve been eating these past few days.
It’s awesome because it can also be prepared ahead at night and reheated in the morning.
Here’s the recipe (serves 2):
ALMOND BUTTER OATMEAL WITH SWEET POTATO & PECAN
- Add all ingredients into a pot and boil on stovetop (medium heat) until thick and bubbly.
- Let it cool slightly before serving.
- Top with cooked sweet potatoes, chopped pecans and a little maple syrup to taste.
- I also piped a little swirl of shiro-an (sweetened white bean paste) because I had some left over in the fridge, but this is completely optional. The star anise is in the photo but only there for decoration.
