Raw oatmeal is super easy to make, but it's important to soak the oats beforehand to reduce their phytic acid content.
I combine the oatmeal with cashew milk to give it a creamy flavor, but the wonderful thing about this dish is you can add anything you want to oatmeal and it's going to taste great. I went with simple raisins and bananas with a bit of cinnamon. Try blending apples, blueberries, goji berries, hemp seeds, almonds etc.
Creamy Cinnamon Oatmeal With Cashew Milk (Gluten Free)
- 1 cup gluten-free oats
- 1 1/2 cup cashew milk (1/2 cup cashews soaked for 6 hours + 1 cup water)
- 2 Tbsp. chia seeds
- 2 Tbsp. raisins
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. vanilla essence
Combine all ingredients together and blend on medium speed until mixed together. Don't put it on a high speed as this will make it more mushy, and this tastes better with some crunch and texture to it.
Put into a bowl and cover, put in the fridge and set for a few hours (I usually leave it overnight for the next morning).
Top with bananas, maple syrup and cinnamon.
*You can always soak the oats first for six hours or so and then blend, then you can eat it right away.
