You might think, oatmeal served at room temperature….how good can this be? We began serving this recipe at the Inn breakfast about 2 years ago, but it has become surprisingly popular and one of our most requested recipes. Being a hot oatmeal lover, I was a little reluctant but became a big fan after my first serving! It is healthy & delicious as well.
The following will make about 12 servings. Use a larger bowl for the 4 cups of oats & 4 cups of milk & a slightly smaller bowl for each of the remaining of ingredients.
Larger bowl: Mix
4 Cups Gluten free or quick oats (Quaker Instant)
4 Cups Unsweetened Soy or Almond milk
Slightly smaller bowl: Mix
1.5 Cups Almond Butter
3 or 4 Bananas – mash with Almond Butter
¾ Cup Maple Syrup
½ C Chia Seeds
Mix the ingredients from both bowls together. Add a bit more milk ½ – ¾ cups if necessary but it should have a nice creamy consistency- shouldn’t be too runny. Place in the refrigerator overnight and serve at room temperature with sliced banana or blueberries and maple syrup on the side.
