Die Base: Whole Grain Oits
Oatmeal is a real power pack and can be used in many ways, not only in vegan cuisine.
If you buy oats from the organic market or supermarket next door, it is best to choose whole grains. For the preparation you can use water or a plant based drink of your choice, for example from almonds. Whether raw or cooked, oatmeal is the ideal base for a whole range of our favorite vegan breakfast dishes:
The much loved oatmeal is filling, healthy and provides you with valuable energy in the morning. Simply boil the oatmeal with plant based mild to the desired consistency. Depending on your appetite, you will need about 50 grams of oatmeal and 250 milliliters of liquid for one serving.
Tipp: You can also easily prepare Overnight Oats with oatmeal - a super tasty breakfst to go.
Pancakes without flour - How should that work? It does - with oats! Together with a ripe banana and plant based milk of your choice, oats make a wonderfully fluffy batter for healthy breakfast pancakes. Just put them in the blender and process them to flour. Add cinnamon, vanilla or cocoa powder to bring your favorite taste. You can also eat pancakes for lunch or dinner. With a warm compote of berries or apples and a dollop of soy yogurt, this recipe is guaranteed to please everyone - vegan or not.
Your favorite granola could use a little more crunch? Here's your new favorite recipe: Bake your own crunchy granola from whole grain oats, seeds and nuts and sweeten your creation with agave syrup or date syrup. Your homemade muesli topping not only tastes heavenly, it also comes without any added refined sugar.
Tip: But beware, here it lurks: hidden added sugar! If you want to mix your granola with dried fruits, make sure that there is no product sweetened with refined sugar in your shopping cart. You can find information about this in the ingredients list.
Unlike Granola, for muesli the ingredients are not baked, but enjoyed raw. By the way, if you enjoy creative kitchen sessions, you're guaranteed to have extra fun putting together granola and muesli. From oatmeal to almonds, shredded coconut, seeds, superfood toppings and dried fruit - there are no limits to your culinary creativity. You can mix your self-created ready-made mixture in larger quantities and fill it into storage jars.
Tip: Have you ever tried the combination of muesli and herbs? It sounds strange at first, but tastes even better the second time around. Fresh mint or even a little basil give your muesli a summery-fresh taste.
Toppings: Fruits and Nuts
We like to top our vegan oatmeal-based breakfast with fresh fruit, dried fruit and organic nuts. To avoid hidden added sugar, you can easily prepare your own toppings. Want some inspiration? Here are some of our favorite combos.
Local: A crunchy mix of almonds and apples
To top a delicious smoothie bowl or our favorite porridge, we like to reach for local products. A mix of apples and pears also provides a nice crunch. When choosing organic almonds, we make sure that the small energy suppliers come from Europe, for example from Spain.
