Maple Walnut Spice Oatmeal

 

Treat yourself and experience the enticing zest of this Maple Walnut Spice Oatmeal recipe! While we can just stir up nut butter and oats and get a delicious breakfast on our table, this fall-spiced oatmeal will definitely jazz up your cold mornings and impress guests on special days. Cinnamon and maple paired with fresh figs and walnuts are so enticing! Can’t catch fresh figs on their season? Fresh raspberries or dried figs will do. You may also want to use another grain like quinoa, buckwheat, or amaranth. Their taste can bring lip-smacking spice on your breakfast table too!

 

 

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk
1 cup water
½ teaspoon sea salt
3 tablespoons dried currants
