Baked Oatmeals with Plums
Don’t you love September? Here is a simple and delicious recipe for this golden month🍁🌻 That is the start of Vata in Ayurveda, the dosha of air and ether elements, the time of winds, cooler weather, dryness and roughness. That is why we crave for a warm-cozy afternoon, with tea and fresh baked crumbles!
- 2-3 Plums (or 1 apple, deseeded and cut into pieces or a few tablespoons of homemade plum marmalade)
- 3-4 tbsp Oats
- 1-2 tbs Seeds like sunflower, pumpkin, flax, sesame
- Coconut shreds or shaves to decorate
- 1 tbs Coconut oil or ghee
- Warming spices like Cinnamon, cardamom, clove, star anise
- Pure Vanilla and pinch of pink salt
- If you are not using a marmalade then you can add a natural sweetener like maple or date syrup, about 1teaspoon or 1tbs raisins/mulberries
- 1 tbs Almond shaves or powder (Optional)
- Set the oven to 160 degrees celsius
- Brush half the the oil into your heat resistant dish
- Place the fruits or marmalade on the bottom
- If you are not using marmalade, drizzle a little maple or date syrup
- Sprinkle oats, seeds, coconut, almond, spices, vanilla and salt
- Drizzle rest of the oil on top
- Bake for about 15-20min or until the opt is golden brown and fruits are cooked
- Enjoy with a ginger-cardamom-hibiscus tea!
- For marmalade, simply cook the cut plums with a little bit of water and spices like cinnamon, clove, star anise, vanilla. You can add 1-2 dates, or raisins to make it sweeter if your plums are not sweet enough. First bring to boil and then simmer until they are soft. Add chia seeds (I added 2 tbs for about 1kg plums) before or after blending the plums in a blender or food processor and mix them all. Pour to jars while they are hot, seal well and let them cool. I keep them in the fridge just in case.
