Pure Cinnamon Toasted Oats

These proportions will make enough for two servings, but can easily be doubled or tripled for more.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup quinoa – well rinsed
  • 1/4 cup large flake oats – toasted*
  • 1/4 cup dried fruit – apples and cranberries
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons PURE Cinnamon Nutmeg & Clove Maple Infusion

Method:

  1. *Toasted Oats – Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Spread the oats in a thin layer on a cookie sheet and bake for about 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned and fragrant.
  3. Stir them around a couple of times during the cooking process to ensure even browning.
  4. Combine all of the ingredients except for the PURE Maple Infusion in a medium sized pot, and slowly bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  5. Once the mixture starts to boil, remove the pot from the heat, cover, and let sit overnight at room temperature.
  6. In the morning warm the porridge over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 5-10 minutes until heated through.
  7. Remove from heat, and add the PURE Maple Infusion and stir to combine.
  8. Sprinkle each bowl with a few more nuts, and add some fresh fruit or a spoonful of jam and serve.
