Ring on our doorbell at around 7.15 a.m. on any random weekday and it’s highly likely that you will find one of us in front of the stove, stirring a pan of oatmeal or porridge while the kids are banging their spoons on the table, chanting: ‘Vi er sultne, vi er sultne!’ (We are hungry, we are hungry!). I am not sure what kind of marathon they run in their sleep, but they always wake up starving. Oatmeal is great in that sense, as it only takes a few minutes to cook and is packed with energy. Finish with a drizzle of honey if you prefer it sweeter.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

Apple Compote

Quantity Ingredient
1 apple, cored
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon runny honey, (optional)
1/4 teaspoon ground vanilla
or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon fresh ginger, peeled and grated
or 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

Carrot and Rye Oatmeal

Quantity Ingredient
60g rolled oats
60g rye flakes
360ml fresh carrot juice
250ml unsweetened plant-based milk of choice or water
A pinch sea salt

To Serve

Quantity Ingredient
sultanas
or raisins
raw cacao nibs
toasted flaxseeds, colour of choice

Method

  1. To prepare the apple compote, cut the apple into cubes, transfer to a small saucepan, add the rest of the apple compote ingredients, plus 2 tablespoons of water, cover, bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring from time to time, until tender and golden and the liquid has reduced.
  2. Meanwhile, place all of the oatmeal ingredients in a medium-sized saucepan, bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes or until thick and creamy, stirring from time to time so the oatmeal doesn’t burn on the base of the pan.
  3. Serve the oatmeal topped with a spoonful of the apple compote and a sprinkling of sultanas or raisins, cacao nibs and flaxseeds.
