INGREDIENTS

THE BASE

  • 3 tbsp of wholemeal oatmeal
  • 1 full spoon of bitter cocoa powder (optional)
  • 1 full spoon of maple syrup or agave juice (or if you prefer honey)
  • A glass of water or oat milk
  • A pinch of cinnamon (optional)

THE GARNISH

For decoration you can use various combinations. I used this:

  • Sultanas
  • Grated coconut
  • 1 teaspoon of maple syrup
  • Poppy seeds

Alternatively you could use berries or oat bran. Or you could use almond or pistachio grain. Or even the mint together with oat flakes as shown for example in the following photo.

DIRECTIONS

THE BASE. Pour the oatmeal into the small pan, along with the cocoa and cinnamon. With the help of a hand whisk, mix these ingredients. Then add the maple syrup and gradually the water (or oat milk), continuing to stir to prevent lumps from forming.

Bring the small pan to the heat and, stirring constantly, cook over low heat for a few minutes. When the mixture has thickened, turn off the heat under the pan and pour the mixture thus obtained into the bowl using the silicone spatula.

THE GARNISH. After waiting at least ten minutes for the mixture to cool, decorate the oat cream with the ingredients for the garnish. (N.B. Decoration is optional, you can also avoid it if you prefer)
