On cold winter mornings, all I ever want for breakfast is something warm and comforting. And there is nothing better than oatmeal to warm you up, am I right?! I think so.
This is actually the first time I’ve ever put turmeric in my oats! I know, I’m behind on this trend. I’ve been seeing people put turmeric in their oats for a while now, I’ve just been too stubborn to deviate from my boring go-to recipe of cinnamon oats with lots of fruit toppings.
But I’m telling you, if you like turmeric, you will LOVE it in your oatmeal. It gives a really nice earthy (almost savory) flavor to an otherwise sweet breakfast. I wasn’t going for a completely savory oat breakfast, so I added in some maple syrup and homemade blackberry jam and OHMYGOSH, you guys. I love this combo, it gives just the right amount of sweetness, alongside the more savory turmeric.
And to make it even better, turmeric has a ridiculous amount of health benefits. It is super anti-inflammatory in the body, so you are starting off your morning in the most perfect way. Delicious AND healthy. Score.
