Morning. 🙂 You know what makes a bowl of oatmeal truly special?
Alright, they aren’t freckles, but that’s what I’ll tell my kids. ;) I actually added a bit of vanilla bean to my oatmeal this morning, and the result was fantastic.
You can find whole vanilla bean in the spice section of most well-stocked grocery stores.
To get the most of the flecks out, roll the entire length of the bean in between your fingers for a few seconds.
Then, slice lengthwise and use a knife to scrap it out. Mmmm!
On the stovetop, I cooked:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 banana
- Vanilla bean
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Topping: sunflower seeds
A lovely sweet and salty combination!
