Smooth Pineapple and Cinnamon Oatmeal
June 30, 2015 - By Sophie Blais
I love oatmeal, all kinds of gruel. The combinations are endless and always delicious. Here, I will share my favourite combination, which tastes just like a pineapple upside-down cake. I prefer to use the microwave for this recipe, because it creates a smoother, less watery texture than the stove. Most of all, it requires less time, and there are no dirty dishes!
250 ml (1 cup) pineapple chunks
250 ml (1cup) enriched almond milk, unsweetened
80 ml (1/3 cup) oat flakes
5 ml (1 teaspoon) vanilla extract
10 ml (2 teaspoons) cinnamon
5 ml (1 teaspoon) maple syrup
125 ml (1/2 cup) 0% M.F. plain Greek yogurt
8 pecans, chopped
1. In a bowl, mix together the pineapple, oat flakes, almond milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and 5 ml (1 teaspoon) of maple syrup.
2. Microwave at high intensity until the oats absorb all the liquid and become smooth. I suggest 5 to 8 minutes, depending on the microwave.
3. In a bowl, mix the Greek yogurt with the remaining 5 ml (1 teaspoon) of maple syrup, and set aside.
4. When the oatmeal is ready, garnish with yogurt and pecans.
