Sun-dried Tomato & Prosciutto Savory Oats


It’s National Oatmeal Day! And, one of my favorite ways to enjoy oats is by making it them into savory oats.

Have you tried savory oats? They are so good! The combination of bone broth, coconut milk and oats make for one tasty start to the day. The sun-dried tomatoes give this dish an umami taste, that is tied together with the prosciutto. I used Prosciutto di daniele, but it is totally optional. This kind of prosciutto is darker in color and sweeter in flavor than prosciutto di parma and compliments this dish very nicely.

Lavender Hibiscus Oak Old Fashion Oats

How do you like your oats? Do you like it with cream and brown sugar? How about raisins and walnuts? Even if you don’t normally eat or care for oats, I have a feeling you will like this one…

Old fashion oats with cashew milk, lavender hibiscus oak bitters from Crude Bitters, maple syrup, topped with blueberries, coconut shavings and Skout Backcountry pumpkin seeds 👌🏻 It was one of those types of mornings, where I needed something nostalgic but with a twist.  

It doesn’t get any easier than this. Here’s what you’ll need to know: Cook old fashion oats in cashew milk (or milk of choice) with a dash of real salt, 1 tbsp coconut shavings, 1 tsp maple syrup, a few dashes of bitters. Top with blueberries, 1 tbsp coconut shavings, 1/2 tbsp Skout Backcountry pumpkin seeds

Just keep in mind that bitters have an alcohol content, so you should only include them if you are cooking oats. Add them at the beginning of the cooking process to ensure that the alcohol cooks off and use a light touch.

Zoats: Zucchini + Oats

Zucchini + Oats = pure awesomeness. 😜 Zoats are on the rise as a fibre-filled and very Instagram-friendly breakfast. Ok, I get it, the mash-up might sound odd, but they are SO GOOD! You get that oat-y taste of a breakfast bowl that remains essentially unchanged, while the zucchini brings a punch of goodness, setting you up for the day before you've even started it. By adding a fiber-filled zucchini in with your oats first thing in the morning, you'll more than likely get as much as a third of your recommended daily intake with your breakfast.
