Creamy Banana Oats & Blackberry Compote
As the days grow shorter and the evenings become cooler my attention begins to turn to the more comforting things in life. Steamy bowls of slow-cooked food and thick and textured blankets to snuggle under. Sparkly mood lighting, fluffy socks and a good book by my side. I have been known to spend hours pouring over Pinterest, getting caught up in a world of hygge and spice to celebrate the season change and this year has been no different.
There really is nothing more inviting than a bowl of warm comfort food, however, this year I have set myself the challenge to stay as plant-based as possible. While there are many recipes out there that fit the 'healthy' brief I am craving those oozy, gooey and downright drool-worthy recipes that begin to spring up at this time of year! So, here we have it. The beginning of our Autumn plant-based range. I have put together a large collection of plant-based comfort food for you all to enjoy over the coming seasons to keep you, I and all those other fabulous families out there healthy, happy and as nourished as possible.
Servings 2 people
1/2 cup oats
2 small ripe bananas
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
2-3 cups of dairy-free milk dependant on how thick or loose you like it
1 tbsp maple syrup optional
150 g blackberries
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp maple syrup optional
Pop your blackberries into a saucepan and add your water and maple syrup.
Gently bring to a boil and simmer for approximately 20 minutes. Until all of the blackberries have broken down and then the liquid reduces to a sticky syrup consistency.
To make the banana oats simply mash up your banana and add them and your other ingredients into a fresh pan. (Add your milk 1/2 cup at a time.)
Heat your ingredients together until smooth and creamy.
Add as little or as much of your milk as you like dependant on your prefered texture. I add all 3 cups as I enjoy a very wet porridge.
Portion out your creamy oats into a bowl and spoon over the blackberry compote. Enjoy!
I can't promise you that on the odd occasion there won't be a real treat recipe popping up for you but for the most part, I want to only create nourishing and health-promoting recipes this autumn and winter. Join us on our quest to have the healthiest end to this fantastic year and instead of waiting for the new years resolutions, start making those healthy changes right now. When the food tastes this good…It would be crazy not to!
