Oatmeal is an excellent start to the day. It’s full of energy and it keeps you full until lunchtime. On top of that, it’s just about the most cost-efficient start to the day there is. The trouble is, it tastes pretty bland on its own.

Luckily, there are plenty of quick and easy ways to make a hot bowl of porridge tasty and enticing. Here are some of our favorites.

Fruit and Nuts

Adding banana to porridge makes it taste thicker and creamier, and a handful of fruits and nuts will add delicious flavors and give you added nutrients. A spoonful of cinnamon is also a tasty tip if you want to spice things up.

[PL/ENG] The recipe for oatmeal you see in the picture is really easy and yummy 😋 All you need is: ✔️old fashioned rolled oats (I used 55-60g) ✔️plant milk (or just water) ✔️medium-sized carrot ✔️sweetener, cinnamon ✔️skyr or any other high protein yoghurt of your choice While the oats are cooking, grate the carrot. When the oatmeal is almost ready, add the carrot + cinnamon and sweetener. When everything is finished, add the yoghurt. That’s how you receive a delicious creamy oatmeal, which is also high in protein 🙈♥️ * W głosowaniu znaczna większość prosiła mnie o przepis na owsianka carrot-cheesecake 🙈 Tak więc przychodzę dzis do was x przepisem hahha Może i brzmi skomplikowanie, ale naprawdę nie ma się czego obawiać 😅 Potrzebujecie ✔️płatki owsiane (u mnie 55-60g) ✔️niedużą marchewkę ✔️50/50 napój roślinny, woda ✔️słodzik, cynamon ✔️skyr naturalny Płatki gotujemy, marchewkę trzemy na tarce. Gdy płatki są już praktycznie gotowe dodajemy marchewkę, cynamon i słodzik. Na koniec mieszamy ze skyrem, dzięki czemu powstaje pyszna owsianka o kremowej konsystencji 🙈🤤 Na dodatek dokładamy sobie dobrej porcji białka! Miłej niedzieli ❣️ * * * #healthyfood #teamowsianka #owsianka #oats #oatmeal #zdroweodzywianie #dieta #diet #ed #vegetarianrecipes #healthybreakfast #breakfast #porridge #skyr #carrot #carrotcake #carrotoatmeal

Fruit and Peanut Butter

You don’t need to have a fruit bowl of exotic fruits to make your porridge taste yummy. Sliced banana and a handful of berries should do the trick. Oh, and don’t forget a spoonful of peanut butter. Not only does it go wonderfully with porridge, it contains healthy fats to give you energy for the day.

Chocolate Oatmeal

If you like to get your sugar kick in the morning, why not add some coacoa powder to your porridge? This sweet recipe is delicious and is much healthier than you might think.

Go Savory

You don’t need to stick to sweet flavors for your morning bowl. We love this pumpkin and egg recipe for a protein-packed and delicious start to the day.

Smoothie Bowls

And if you aren’t convinced by any of these hot dishes, you can always just add a handful of oats to your favorite smoothie bowl. You’ll get all the energy and nutrients and won’t even realize its there.
