This morning, I was out of all fruits except a half a bag of mandarin oranges. After looking around for a few minutes at other breakfast options, I decided to come up with a new recipe using the mandarn oranges and my regular breakfast of Rolled or Steel-Cut Oats. This one was a winner!!!
|Orange Raisin Oatmeal|
Prep Time: 10 min
Ingredients (Serves 1):
- 2/3 cup Rolled (Old-Fashioned) Oats
- 2/3 cup Water
- 1/3 cup Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
- 1 tbsp Raisins
- 1 tbsp Slivered Almonds
- 1 tbsp Chia Seeds
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp Maple Syrup (optional)
- a dash of Ground Nutmeg
Soak oats, raisins and Chia seeds in 2/3 cup of water and microwave on high for 3 minutes. Meanwhile, squeeze the juice of 4-5 Mandarin oranges (I needed 4 to make 1/3 cup) into a separate bowl. Once the oats are done, remove from microwave, mix well, add slivered almonds, vanilla extract, maple syrup (optional) and then mix in the 1/3 cup Orange juice. Transfer to a serving bowl, sprinkle a dash of ground nutmeg on top and garnish with a few sections, or a full slice. Enjoy!!
