“Latte” Oatmeal

You may remember that Coffee Oatmeal was one of the things on my Fall Bucket List. I have been thinking about this breakfast for a long time, but somehow it took me a while to get around to it.

Since I don’t have instant coffee, I decided to use coffee concentrate. Simply combine 2/3 cup coffee with 3 cups of water, and let it sit overnight, up to 12 hours, before straining to separate out the liquid. I use my French Press, making the straining process very easy.

Speaking of my French Press, when I bought it about a year and a half ago, I actually bought a French Press and Milk Frother set that had been a holiday special. The set was on sale for the price of the French Press, meaning I got the frother for free! I haven’t used it for months, but as I was contemplating my perfect bowl of coffee oats, I was inspired to top them off with some fresh milk froth.

Frothy Milk

Latte Oatmeal

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup Coach’s Oats
  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups water
  • pinch salt
  • 1 large banana
  • 1/4 cup coffee concentrate
  • Frothed milk

Method

Combine oats, chia seeds, milk, water, and salt in a pot over medium heat. Thinly slice the banana into the pot, and stir vigorously to combine.

Cooking the Oats

Divide oatmeal between two bowls. Pour coffee concentrate over the oatmeal, and top with a few large scoops of frothy milk.

Double coffee: Latte oatmeal, and cafe au lait!

These were some tasty oats! Definitely a fun treat to add into my breakfast rotation. And that milk frother will not be sitting unused for months at a time any more… I had forgotten how easy it is to use, and how much I like frothy milk.

I almost forgot the raspberries!

Raspberries go well with latte oats!
