So yes, my obsession with rose continues. Sorry but I’m not sorry. Rose water is my favourite little magic touch to everything at the minute. From breakfasts to smoothies to baked goods this just adds a subtle hint of flavour and a beautiful aroma to literally anything. You can find this in most Indian or middle eastern supermarkets too. It’s really inexpensive and just so versatile.
This breakfast has become my latest go to at the moment. I make it as an overnight oats kind of set up but I just love it gently heated the next morning too depending on how much time I have to play with. (You know every moment I can stay in bed is precious to me). So I pop it all on a jar and either hit the road with it or stay and get to savor it a little more. Either way it tastes great and is ridiculously easy to make. Also I just love the level of smugness I feel when I’m not even out of the shower and my breakfast is already ready.
I’ve played around with different fruit to top this. So far I love it with Apricots, or Peaches. I imagine Cherries and Strawberries are good options and intend on trying them next. I love pairing pistachios with rose but other nuts and seeds would work just fine here.
This recipe serves one. But as you can see it’s easily multiplied.
3/4 Cup Almond Milk
1 Tbs Chia seeds
1/3 Cup Oats
1 tsp Rose Water
1Tsp something sweet -honey maple etc.
Fruit to top
And Pistachios or other nuts or seeds.
I literally throw everything into a jar, secure the lid well and give a good shake. Then pop it into the fridge over night.
If I’m having this warm, I heat it over a low heat gently in a pan. If it gets a little thick feel free to splash a little more almond milk in.
Top as you like and serve 💚
