Ingredients

Preparation time: 15 min
Amount of servings: 2

  • Almond or any other plant milk, 1.5 cups
  • Rolled oats, 50g
  • Erythritol or Monk fruit sweetener, 1 tbsp
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 tsp
  • Pear, 0.5
  • Blueberry, 50g
  • Lemon or orange zest, 0.5 tsp
  • Coconut oil, 1 tbsp
  • Seeds or coconut curls for decoration, 2 tsp
  • Salt, pinch

Instructions

  1. In a saucepan, combine oats, milk, sweetener, cocoa powder, and a pinch of salt.
  2. Cook the oats for 5-7 minutes after the milk comes to a boil. It's done when the liquid thickens slightly.
  3. Avoid overcooking to prevent an increase in the glycemic index of oats.
  4. Once cooked, serve on a plate with berries, coconut curls, nuts, and a sprinkle of lemon zest.

Tips

  • You have the option to create an overnight oats version using this recipe, resulting in an even healthier choice due to the retention of resistant starches in colder conditions.
  • Feel free to incorporate your preferred berries.
  • Opt for fruits with a low or medium glycemic index, particularly when preparing oats for breakfast.
  • Avoid using instant oats, as they can lead to rapid spikes in sugar levels.
