Creamy oatmeal custard is such a yummy breakfast! We have it 2-3 mornings a week. It’s so easy to make and is great to fill hungry tummys.
With just a couple minutes of prep the night before, you can have a hot, yummy breakfast on the table in minutes.
ADD OATMEAL TO YOUR BREAKFAST ROTATION
Oatmeal is one of meals that that I have vivid memories of my grandmother making me for breakfast. They were made with water and a splash of milk at the end. I’d get full access to the brown sugar bowl to do as I pleased. Back then, I liked a little oatmeal with my brown sugar. I’ve come a long way from that carb-heavy, sugar loaded, sad oatmeal! Now, I eat creamy oatmeal custard. It just sounds fancier LOL!
This version is chock full of healthy fats and sweetened with honey. It’s soaked overnight to increase digestibility. Soaking it overnight with an acidic medium (lemon juice, whey) helps break down the phytic acid, that can inhibit the proper absorption of minerals link zinc and iron. Soak your oats!
We buy most of our pantry staples in bulk from Azure Standard. They’re a great place to buy organic and non-gmo ingredients at a good price. I buy our organic oats in 25lb bags. We buy our grass-fed butter in 15lb boxes from them too. We’re lucky to get our raw milk, fresh strawberries and pasture raised eggs from a local farmer. We buy frozen strawberries from Azure Standard in the off season. If you can’t get or don’t use raw milk, grab a good full-fat organic milk and cream. I would use a mix of 50/50 milk & cream. Make sure to get the cream that is not ultra pasteurized. We buy our raw honey from a local producer too. Shop local when you can.
