In my opinion, oats should be a staple in every Witch’s kitchen – they are healthy, delicious, versatile, and inexpensive. On my own path in kitchen witchery, I’ve been focused on incorporating more plant-based, whole foods into my diet, for both health and spiritual reasons, and oats have definitely become foundational in this.
Here is what Scott Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs has to say about the magickal properties of oats:
Magical uses: Use in prosperity and money spells.
I understand this to mean that oats are symbolic of the abundance of the harvest, and the generosity of earth. They have a grounding and feminine energy. You could consider incorporating certain spices in your bowl of oatmeal for their unique magickal properties as well.
These days I have oatmeal almost every day for breakfast and I still look forward to this meal as one that is both comforting and nourishing. Over time I have perfected my recipe for making oatmeal, and want to share it with you! So without further ado, here is how to make a perfect bowl of oats.
1 cup rolled oats
2 cups water
1/2 tsp sea salt
splash of vanilla extract
dash of spice such as cinnamon, cardamom, pumpkin pie spice mix (my fav), etc (optional)
1 spoonful tahini (optional but definitely recommended!)
maple syrup or preferred sweetener
milk or plant milk
- put oats, water, salt, vanilla extract, and spices in pot
- set heat to medium and timer for 10 min
- after 10 min, remove from heat, give it a stir, let rest for 1 min
- mix in tahini to make it extra creamy
- add sweetener and milk , and enjoy!
That’s it! So simple and delicious. You can of course add toppings such as fruit, nuts and seeds. Get creative with it!
I hope you enjoy this recipe and if so, let me know in the comments. 🙂
Happy cooking and bright blessings,
