3 Delicious Oats Recipes For Immunity in the Colder Months

Winter is well and truly here now and, with it, flu season is also in full swing. 

The colder days, drier air, and reduced exposure to vitamin D due to less sun all play a role in influencing our immune systems and make us more susceptible to colds, flus, and seasonal viruses.

Good, nutrient-rich foods can go a long way in bolstering your immunity, and oats are one such food that can help improve your overall health and give you more energy to face the day.

To help you stay healthier during the cold months with meals that are wholesome, warm and healthy, we’re highlighting three fantastic oats recipes that support your immune system when you need them most.

All of these recipes can be made with any of our main GF Oats offerings. 

We avoid the use of high-phosphate fertilisers and process our oats in facilities that are free from the contamination of the gluten found in wheat, rye, spelt, and barley grains.

Our oats are designed with your health and dietary needs in mind and they make the perfect ingredient for the following recipes. If you have any questions about our oats, check out our FAQs or get in touch with us.

Ultimate Immunity Oats

When it comes to healthy winter breakfast recipes, they don’t get much healthier than ultimate immunity oats. This recipe is packed full of nutritional ingredients that will help boost your immune system.

This recipe makes use of ingredients such as oats, kiwi fruit, yoghurt, berries, nuts, and honey. These provide essential nutrients and vitamins like fibre, B vitamins, vitamin C, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, and more.

This recipe requires a little bit of cooking (about four or so minutes) and mixing of ingredients. Once cooked and mixed, top it with pumpkin seeds, yoghurt, Brazil nuts and berries. 

Breakfast Apple & Cinnamon Porridge 

Porridge, apples and cinnamon are all delicious ingredients, and when combined they make for a wonderfully warm and sweet meal.

Our breakfast apple and cinnamon porridge uses oats, cinnamon, apple, sultanas, and milk or water. To make this bowl of warm overnight oats more easily digestible, especially if you have a sensitive stomach, soak your oats overnight.

From there, all you need to do the next day is mix all the ingredients together in a pot and cook them for about 5 minutes.

Porridge with Stewed Rhubarb 

Another delicious warming winter porridge with a different type of sweet flavour profile, our porridge with stewed rhubarb is packed full of nutrients and healthy ingredients that are sure to pick you up on cold days.

With this recipe, you’ll be preparing two components separately. First is the porridge itself, and the second is the stewed rhubarb. Though you’ll be prepping these individually, it is still a relatively quick meal to make.

For the porridge, you’ll want to mix all applicable ingredients together in a pot and then let them soak overnight or, at the very least, for about five minutes. But the longer they soak, the smoother and creamier your porridge will be. 

On the day you’re ready to eat, bring your porridge ingredients to a boil and then let them simmer for five to 10 minutes while stirring occasionally.

For the stewed rhubarb, you’ll put all ingredients together in a stainless steel pot, bring it to a boil, and then let the ingredients simmer for about three minutes.

All of the above are fantastic options when it comes to healthy, immunity-boosting meals. Stay healthy and warm this winter by working these recipes into your days. We’re confident you’ll have more energy, feel healthier, and be better equipped to face each chilly day ahead.
