Coffee Oatmeal is a super healthy breakfast to start your day with. Of course, a cup of coffee in the morning is essential too. So, combining these two seems like a no brainer! Fit girl and food blogger Fit with Lien, created this tasteful recipe with Yirgacheffe Batavia Dutch coffee. The Yirgacheffe is an unwashed coffee, with a part of the pulp still attached to the bean while drying. This gives the coffee a vigorous, fruity character which makes it wonderful to combine with fruit, making the red berries in this recipe worth the addition. Without further ado, this is how you can make oatmeal with red berries and Yirgacheffe at home!

What do you need?

  • 50ml Yirgacheffe Batavia Dutch coffee
  • 50gr of oatmeal
  • 125ml mild yoghurt
  • 1ts of stevia
  • 50ml of water
  • 150gr red berries (frozen)

Step 2: Add the yoghurt and a tablespoon of stevia. Place the red berries on top.

Step 3: Want to try something else? Use oat milk or almond milk instead of water and yoghurt. To top it off, replace the red berries for bananas and raisons. For the true connoisseurs among us, add pieces of dark chocolate!
