Krush in the Kitchen Recipe Roundup: Week 2
This past week on #KrushintheKitchen we gave away a few tried and true Krush recipes. From our Classic Homemade Granola (recipe below!) to our Organic Unsweetened Acai, we shared dishes we always come back to and ones that are blank slates for anything in your pantry. Take for example the Super Seedy Banana Oatmeal or the Berry Cinnamon Chia Pudding (recipe below!) that we showed how to make. Both of these can be altered depending on what you have in stock. Don’t have seeds for the oatmeal? Use almonds or pecans! Don’t have berries for the chia pudding? Use bananas or apples! We’re digging deep into our fridges, shelves and minds for creativity, but also ease. Now’s the time to look back to some mainstay recipes and not worry about cooking five star meals. We are relying on immune-boosting foods and comfort foods and sometimes we get two in one! Find this week’s featured recipes below, and follow us on IG for the others highlighted in our profile here! We will be sharing recipes each week so tell your friends & family to sign up for our newsletter on our website! (Just scroll all the way to the bottom :)) And, don’t forget to show us how you’re using Krush in your kitchen!
Why we love: Having a batch of this around makes it easy to whip up breakfasts or snacks! We use honey to sweeten, which we love for its immune-boosting properties and it’s antimicrobial so has virus fighting properties. (If vegan, feel free to sub maple syrup!)
Makes about 3-4 cups
- 2 1/2 cups gluten free rolled oats
- 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/4 cup safflower oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 Tbsp vanilla
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Then add in the honey, oil and vanilla until all the oats are fully coated.
Line baking sheets with parchment paper and spread the granola evenly throughout the baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes and rotate the sheets halfway.
Jazz up your granola with mix-ins like 1/2 cup chopped almonds or walnuts, a 1/2 cup raisins or dates, 1/2 cup pumpkin or sunflower seeds. You can even add coconut flakes or chocolate chips.
Berry Cinnamon Chia Pudding
Why we love: Chia seeds are known as “strength” seeds, add them into your life for physical and mental strength. They are high in fiber, and fiber actually removes toxins from your body so it helps lower inflammation.
- 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
Mix all ingredients together and let chill for 30 minutes to an hour or overnight. Top with high antioxidant berries like blueberries or strawberries to also add vitamin C to your diet!
