Are your oats dressed or undressed?
Got to thinking about this topic this week as I was preparing a fancy porridge recipe.
Porridge is such a comforting warm healthy breakfast that surprisingly keeps you powering through till lunch.
But the question still remains dressed or undressed?
There has been many a morning when my oats seem to have a runny sloppy consistency and my cupboard that is supposed to be heavy with exciting toppings is incredibly bare!!!
I crave lashings of crunchy nuts, gleaming fruit, pools of nut butter, and drizzles of maple.
So to avoid such depressing mornings I try to be prepared and have such items made and ready.
One such item that really takes your oats into healthy overdrive is pecan sweet potato nut butter.
I am overjoyed that I managed to have this nut butter include a vegetable! The sweet potato makes this nut butter even more hearty and creamy. With a little sweet kick from a bit of maple syrup and cinnamon.
Super easy to make hope you like it!!!
