Festive Oats | Eggnog
Last weekend I caved and bought my first carton of eggnog. You know you are getting close to Christmas when you see this in my fridge. Although, to be honest, I'm the same girl that put up her tree on the 5th of November. So let's just agree, that perhaps I'm a little early with all things Christmas related.
This morning I had grand plans for this carton of eggnog. Oatmeal. An extra special bowl of oatmeal. Happy Monday to me! By subbing out half of my regular milk, for this creamy, delicious, holiday treat, you can almost taste Christmas. A warm bowl of oats is always a pleasant way to start any brisk morning. Filling and yummy!
Just as I went overboard with pumpkin last month, you can bet you'll be seeing more of this flavour in the coming weeks. I'm thinking pancakes, french toast, maybe even muffins. Get ready people we are about to embark on an eggnog adventure.
1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 cup eggnog
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, plus more for serving
1/2 Tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/2 Tbsp pecans, chopped
1/2 Tbsp raisins
In saucepan, heat almond milk and eggnog till it reaches a boil. Add nutmeg and oats. Reduce heat and cook stirring occasionally for 6-8 minutes. Stir in vanilla and brown sugar.
Remove from heat, pour into bowl. Top with pecans and raisins. Add additional milk if desired. ENJOY!
