Golden Oatmeal

Golden Oatmeal

Besides the traditional curry, turmeric is used in other recipes, such as golden milk. golden milk is warm a beverage consumed for thousands of years to detoxify liver and kidneys, relieve sore joints, and boost the immune system. Classic golden milk consists of a warm tea made of turmeric and black pepper, with milk. Black pepper better helps our bodies absorb all the benefits turmeric has to offer.

In the recipe below, I’ve decided to take the flavors of golden milk, and infuse them into baked oatmeal along with cinnamon, and nutmeg and clove. This is not your grandma’s bowl of hot cereal. The combination of spices, and the addition of warm coconut milk, give this oatmeal unique, spicy, warm flavors with a beautiful color to match. The uncooked oatmeal mix can be made in advance, and stored for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. Simply scoop out 1 cup serving and bake.

Top with your favorite fruits and nuts for a nutritionally packed holistic dish, sure to please guests and liven up your traditional brunch!
