Oatmeal has a nostalgic place in my heart. We often think of the paper-packaged overtly sweet packets that would be ready in a few minutes. The warmth of oats on a cold morning, the ease of its quick preparation would lead me to gravitate toward it as a child. Nowadays I go for the healthier route and they are one of those staples that are easy to assemble and devour. You can add as much as you’d like to create a filling bowl, from dried fruits to edible flowers, and coconut butter. It’s hearty and filling which is ideal for on the go or a cozy day-in breakfast.
Before Liora Bel’s recipe from her cookbook The Mix, I would have never thought to add tahini to my oats. However, it’s no different that adding a nut butter, except this falls under seed butter. So if avoiding any kind of nut is on your radar, look to tahini for that neutral creaminess and loads of nutrients.
