Earl Grey Lavender Oatmeal with Blueberries (made with Magic Oats)
Who said oatmeal is boring? I consider it a gorgeous vessel for whatever flavours I'm feeling - sweet or savoury. Cooking ANYTHING in -26 degree weather is a challenge so sometimes you need to go back to basics with some creative twists... which is exactly what I did on our last winter camping trip! Inspired by the Half Baked Harvest and the ingredients I had to work with at home, I present to you my Earl Grey Lavender Oatmeal with Blueberries.
Earl Grey Lavender Oatmeal with Blueberries
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
pinch of salt
3 tbsp La La Lavender Latte Blend from Blume
3 tbsp ground flaxseed
1 teabag of earl grey tea
2 cups of oat milk (I made mine with Magic Oats Oat Milk Powder + Water) + more water if needed
3/4 cup of blueberries
honey (for drizzling)
Boil your 2 cups of oat milk or water for oat milk powder if you're using Magic Oats
Steep earl grey tea in hot oat milk (set aside)
In a separate pot, throw in oats, salt, lavender latte blend, and flaxseed (toast lightly on low heat for 30 seconds)
Add steeped earl grey oat milk to the pot of oats and cook on low per oatmeal package instructions (6-10 minutes depending on type of oats and brand OR less if using instant oats). You may need to add more water or oat milk if you prefer your oats more "soupy"
Stir in blueberries near the end to heat through
Remove from heat
Serve oatmeal with an additional sprinkle of blueberries and a drizzle of honey
If you are making this recipe while camping - premix your oats, lavender latte blend, ground flaxseed, and pinch of salt into a container or bag while packing! Additionally, if your preference is to eat your oatmeal with more of a porridge consistency increase the oat milk to 3 cups.
* This is not a sponsored blog post, I use Magic Oats regularly in backcountry and camp cooking and love playing with Blume Latte Blends.
PS. 1 1/2 cups of oatmeal is not the "suggested serving" for 2 people but we were two very cold people about to go on a snowshoe - energy required. Sometimes servings should just be suggestions :)
