InspirationThe Oatmeal Artist Sweet Potato and Cranberry Oatmeal
The base for my breakfast was one of the multi-servings I made from a big batch of oatmeal, so I'm skipping that part of the recipe here and concentrating on the flavors.
- 1/2 sweet potato
- handful dried cranberries
- bowl of oatmeal (mine is 1/4 cup oats)
- 1 T flax seed meal
- heavy dash of cinnamon
- 1T non-dairy creamer
- 2T almond milk
I cooked the sweet potato in the microwave the night before to shorten the prep time in the morning. It ended up a little too dried out because I cooked it too long. Maybe I should have followed some instructions, but I though I knew what I was doing. :) So instead of winging it, follow these microwaved sweet potato instructions, 4-5 minutes total (not per side!).
In the morning I heated up my bowl of oatmeal in the microwave for 1 minute. While that cooked, I smashed half of the cooked sweet potato with a fork. I added it to the bowl and stirred, and heated it for another minute. Then I added a handful of dried cranberries, cinnamon, and a tablespoon of flax seed meal and stirred it all around. Added the non-dairy creamer and almond milk to slosh around on top.
