3 kinds of oats

It is no secret that I love oats and I love breakfast, so I created three different ways to cook a delicious, nourishing and healthy breakfast by using oats!
Overnight oats is the first and easiest one of them and the bowl of heaven will keep you fully satisfied until lunch! You can add lots of different spices and ingredients to give your oats the taste you like. For an example, it's really tasty with chopped dates, cinnamon, lemon juice, shredded coconut, raw cocoa powder or whatever you feel like having. There's no limit!

Here's the ground recipe:

2 dl or 2/3 cup oats
1 dl or 2/6 cup milk of your choice
1 dl or 2/6 cup yoghurt (skyr)
1 ripe banana

Mix yoghurt, milk and oats in a bowl. Mash the banana and stir that in too.
Put it all in a bowl, a jar or a container and cover it with cling film or a lid. Place in the fridge over night and the next morning, you can top it with nuts, seeds, fruit or whatever you feel like decorating it with.



The next recipe is cooked oatmeal, which I absolutely adore because of the creamy and gooey texture. Every time I finish a bowl, I want another.



Here's the recipe:


2 dl or 2/3 cup oats
A dash of milk of your choice
3 tbsp yoghurt (skyr)
1 ripe banana 
Cinnamon or raw cocoa powder (optional)

Mash the banana and put it into a saucepan. Add the oats, the yoghurt and the cinnamon or cocoa powder and stir until well-combined. Turn the heat to low or medium and stir until it's creamy and soft. 
Serve in a bowl and top with whatever you like!


For the last recipe, you will need a little patience. But it will be worth the wait, I promise!

Here's the recipe:


2 dl or 2/3 cup oats
A dash of milk of your choice
3 tbsp yoghurt (skyr)
1 ripe banana 
3 dates
1 tsp baking powder
Cinnamon or raw cocoa powder (optional)

Chop the dates and put them in a bowl together with the oats, milk and yogurt. Mix it together and let it soak for 10 minutes, while you mash the banana and preheat the oven to 200 degrees celsius or 392 degrees fahrenheit. 
When the soaking is done, stir in the mashed banana and the baking powder (I added some chopped almonds to give it a little crunch). Pour the mixture into a baking dish and put on your toppings! If you don't like your toppings baked, it's no problem to add them afterwards. 
Put it into the oven for 20 minutes or longer if you want it even more crispy.




Serve with some fruits and enjoy!
