As I already confessed in my previous recipe post I am really behind the fast moving food-trends-wagon. How dare I consider myself a foodie when I am so out-of-date?

Here is another proof of my foodie-incompetence. Up until recently I had no idea what Matcha was. Oops… Thankfully, there are good people in the world. And good people from Kiss Me Organics (btw, LOVE that company name!) offered me to try their wonderful product, and now I can’t stop using it. Really… I can’t. I put Matcha pretty much in and on everything. But listen to this. Right after I started using Matcha at home, our next door coffee shop +Ula Cafe started serving Mint Matcha Lattes. How weird is that? If it’s not destiny, I don’t know what it is then! The Universe is so obviously wanted me to know about Matcha.In case you are clueless like me, Matcha is a powdered green tea that is rich in vitamin, minerals and antioxidants. Just like coffee, it gives you a boost of energy, but unlike coffee it doesn’t give you jitters.

So yeah… now my body consists of about seventy present of matcha green tea. And I can tell you this much – this probably would not be the last recipe I’m going to post using the magic green powder.

If you would like to know more about Matcha’s benefits or history – head over to Kiss Me Organics website.Matcha Collage

On to the recipe.
I don’t know about you, but my favorite type of oats is, hands down, steel cut oats. I love the fact that you can make them a night before and it barely take any time. Then, if you “dress then up” properly, you really will get yourself a breakfast of champions.
So, try this. Add a couple of teaspoons of matcha to your oats, some agave syrup, a dash of salt, then top it with some juicy fruit like mango and with something crunchy goodness like nuts or granola, and I promise you will look at oats in a whole different way.This recipe serves 4.
Ingredients:
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 2 tablespoons light agave syrup
  • 2 teaspoon matcha green tea powder
  • Toppings of your choice (fruits, berries, nuts, granola)
Directions:
In a medium pot, combine water, milk and salt. Bring to boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, add oats, agave syrup and matcha powder, and whisk together until matcha is fully dissolved.Watching closely, bring the oats back to boil and cook for 2 minutes. Turn the heat off, cover the pot tightly with lid and let sit overnight.

In the morning, stir the oats and put the pot over medium heat. Cook for 10 minutes.

Serve with toppings of your choice. Enjoy!
