You may have remembered in this post, me professing my love for dates. The craziness that something 100% natural could taste so close to the 'full-of-sugar-and-saturated fat' chewy caramels I used to love.
'Now we can make healthy caramel flavoured things!'
That was literally my face.I was thinking caramel pancakes, caramel doughnuts, caramel ice cream... Caramel everything!
Then I woke up this morning and wanted creamy dreamy oat bran.
I rushed to the kitchen, grabbed a few ingredients and set about making what can only be described as a warm, gooey, caramel pudding
Caramel Oat Bran Pudding:
1/2 cup oat bran
4 medjool (bigger and juicier) dates, pitted and chopped
1/4 banana, sliced (I froze the rest of mine)
sprinkle of chia seeds (optional)
sprinkle of sea salt flakes (optional, but I definitely recommend it to bring out flavour and balance sweetness)
1 1/4 cups of milk (I used almond milk)
1. Place everything except the milk into a medium saucepan and stir to combine:
5. Transfer to a bowl perhaps using this trick, top with anything you like- I would recommend nut butter/ coconut butter.6. Whilst you're pudding is cooling, you could make some blueberry fro-yo by whazzing together some frozen blueberries and greek yoghurt until smooth:
Do you like caramel?
Do dates remind you of caramel?
What's your favourite caramel food? (bars/ice cream/ cookies etc.)
Well that's it from me today guys! Don't forget to have a delicious day of eats!
