Once you try this Creamy Oat Bran Porridge, you may never go back to traditional oatmeal again. This make-ahead breakfast is the nourishment you need to get your mornings going!Vegetarian | Vegan | Gluten Free
1cup (94g)oat bran
1 1/2 - 2cupsplant-based milk of your choice
1/4teaspoonfine sea salt
1 to 2teaspoonspure maple syrup
additional milk for serving
In a medium saucepan, over medium high heat, add the oat bran and whisk continuously for just under a minute, or until you begin to smell it toasting.
Add the water and the milk while whisking constantly to keep the oat bran from clumping. The pot will sizzle a bit with the addition of cold liquids.
Continue whisking as the mixture comes to a full boil. Reduce the heat just a bit to keep things simmering and continue to cook for 3 minutes, whisking frequently, or better yet…constantly.
Serve in bowls with a splash of additional milk and your choice of toppings. Any remaining oat bran can be stored in the refrigerator for up to five days.
When making this for the first time, use 1 1/2 cups of plant-based milk. Increase, up to 2 cups, to desired consistency.If you are gluten sensitive, be sure that your oat bran is labeled gluten-free.
