Creamy Hojicha Oatmeal Bowl

Hojicha Oatmeal

There’s nothing as comforting as a warm bowl of hojicha oatmeal on a cold morning. Roasted green tea is a deliciously healthy alternative to those artificial flavors found in instant oatmeal packets. The best part about cooking rolled oats on a stovetop is being rewarded with a perfectly creamy bowl of oatmeal every single time.

The secret to a creamier consistency is combining the oats with the cold liquids before cooking, and letting the oats stand for a few minutes to thicken. While the toppings are completely optional, adding them isn’t just for making your oatmeal bowl picture perfect as they also provide extra nutrition and contrasting textures.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon Hojicha Powder
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon ground flax or chia seeds (optional)
  • ⅛ teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
  • 350 ml water
  • 120 ml milk
  • 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup (adjust to taste)
  • Optional toppings: almonds, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, black sesame seeds, raspberries

Instructions

  1. Add 1 tablespoon of hojicha powder, 1 cup rolled oats, 1 teaspoon ground flax or chia seeds, and ⅛ teaspoon Himalayan pink salt into a small pot.
  2. Mix well until the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  3. Add 350 ml cold water and 120 ml of your favorite type of milk into the oats.
  4. Stir and let sit for at least 2 minutes.
  5. Heat the mixture on medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until it thickens to your desired consistency.
  6. Pour the oatmeal into a bowl and stir in 1-2 tablespoons of maple syrup.
  7. Top the breakfast with your desired nuts, seeds, and fruit.
