Making a hot pot of coffee and drinking it daily in the morning is an excellent way to wake up. There is no better way to start a day than to eat a healthy breakfast. You can try making coffee oatmeal.
Recipe of Coffee Oatmeal:
This recipe for coffee oatmeal is made for an enjoyable breakfast in addition to the caffeine from the coffee, helping you stay alert throughout the morning.
Ingredients: (Serves 2)
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 3/4 cup milk (or you can use almond milk, soy milk, or rice milk)
- 3 tbsp. cocoa powder, unsweetened sugar or honey to taste (optional), coffee beans and cinnamon powder to taste (optional).
- Line a colander with a cheesecloth or a coffee filter. Put the oatmeal in and place it over a big pot of water on medium heat. Cook the oats until they are soft for about 25 to 30 minutes. Let them cool down before straining them with a fine-mesh sieve or an ordinary strainer. (If you have sharp blades, they will chop up the oats and possibly cause some spillage into your cup.) Otherwise, do it by putting the oats on a cheesecloth and tying it around the bowl of your strainer
- In a saucepan, add enough water to measure one 1/4 cups (245ml). Add the coffee beans and bring them to a boil. Let it boil for 5 minutes, then pour all of it into a mug.
- Add the milk to boiling water in another saucepan. Simmer it on low heat for 7 to 8 minutes until the volume is reduced by half (You can use 1 cup milk and 1 cup water.).
- In a blender, put in 3/4 cup (190ml) of the coffee/milk mixture, three tablespoons cocoa powder, 1/2 cup oats (or you can grind them in a blender), sugar or honey to taste (optional), and cinnamon powder to taste (optional). Blend until smooth (about 30 seconds). Pour the mixture into two coffee mugs.
- Add the rest of the coffee, 1/4 cup at a time, and stir it until it is completely dissolved. If you think it is too thick, add more coffee or milk.
- Serve with a side of banana slices, toasted pumpkin seeds, or a muffin top if you like; all that’s left to do is enjoy your first cup of coffee oatmeal of the day! (For a vegan version, use non-dairy milk instead of milk and substitute the cream with coconut milk–Creamy Coconut Coffee Oatmeal. For a gluten-free version, use gluten-free oats instead of regular oats and substitute the cocoa powder with sunflower seed or chia seed powder.).

Recipe of Blueberry Coffee Baked Oats:
- 1 cup of oats
- One tablespoon dutch-processed cocoa powder
- Two tablespoons of brown sugar (or 1/2 teaspoon of powdered Stevia)
- One teaspoon of baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt (or half of the regular salt)
- 1 cup milk of choice (I used low-fat milk)
- One tablespoon of the blueberry mixture: 3/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (or raspberries, blackberries, etc.)- the whole is better, but if it’s not hard to chop them, then you can chop them into quarters. Use just one type of berry.
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- One tablespoon cornstarch
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Sauté the shallots and stir them until they soften for about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the sugar and sprinkle with brown sugar, and add flour and salt. Stir for a couple of minutes until you have a nice dough ball (it will not be shiny like cookie dough and dry because you are using all flour). Remove from the heat and add the milk. Stirring constantly, then bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute and then Add the vanilla and stir; it will look soupy at this point. Cover and cook over low heat for 15 minutes. Stir in the cornstarch mixture, blueberries and baking powder; mix well. Pour into a baking dish (or in glass mugs or cups).
Heat the oven to 375 F (190 C) and bake for 30 minutes. Serve with sweetened cream or yogurt instead of adding sugar to the recipe.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Will oats help reduce my weight?
A. Yes, I do believe oats are good for weight loss. Oats are low in GI and have a high fiber content that helps aid in the digestion of your food. Oats also contain beta-glucan fiber, which helps control blood glucose levels.
Q. What kind of milk do I use to make my oatmeal?
A. I have used cow and goat milk, but I prefer cow’s milk for the amount of fat. If you are new to yogurt making and want to try a low-fat version, goat milk is an excellent substitute for cow’s milk. Either way, the oats will be digested much easier when using the organic option.
