Around this time of year I start eating oatmeal more regularly, so I like to mix things up a little.
I buy a big brick of date paste…
and use it to sweeten my breakfast. For a single serving, I usually add a heaping Tbsp of the date paste to my water and let it cook down while I bring the water to a boil.
This time I also added cinnamon and raisins to the oatmeal.
I add a little tahini for fat, and water to thin it down. Pinch of salt optional.
