I love oatmeal. I never really realized it before, but its quickly become my number one coveted meal of the day. Enough talk, on to the recipe!!!
Adapted from MindBodyGreen plus a few alterations of my own (i use agave nectar, i add extra almond milk and eliminate water)
1 cup of organic oats (not instant)
1.5 cup almond milk (or 1 cup almond milk, .5 cups water)
1 Tbs Agave Nectar
Blueberries (1/2 to 1 cup, as much as you like!)
Ground flax seeds – Approx 1/4 cup
Handful of your favorite nut – I use toasted walnuts/pecans
1/2 tsp cinnamon (I probably do a little extra)
1/2 tsp vanilla (Good but unnecessary)
You can also add chopped up dates if you don’t have blueberries – this was a big hit in my house!!!
Combine the water, almond milk and oatmeal and bring to a boil over medium heat.
Bring down to a slow simmer and stir in the flax, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla and nuts.
After about 5 minutes the oats should be cooked, so turn off the heat.
Last, add the banana and blueberry – (you don’t want to cook them so they retain all their nutritional integrity).
