Breakfast Inspiration. Lavender & Coconut Oatmeal with Chia Seeds.

February 23, 2012 — 2 Comments

Mmmmm fragrant

No sugar doesn’t equal no sweetness in life. And what’s sweeter than the smell of a rose?

Hunting around my cupboards I realised I don’t have much in the way of rose water, rose geranium essence…I’m even all out of vanilla essence. But what I did have is edible lavender! The right kind of lavender has to be used in cooking, being the sweeter tasting English variety. I *think* all lavender is edible, but other varieties have higher levels of camphor oil which is toxic to the body. No we don’t want that one.

Voila, lavender oatmeal was born.

Cook the oatmeal (here and here), adding some fragrant and naturally sweet coconut shavings, some chia seeds for superfood content, and a pinch of dried lavender. Don’t go overboard or it’ll overpower your tastebuds. I even think some banana would compliment nicely.

Don’t forget to skip through the tulips on your way to work!
