World’s Best Breakfast

May 16, 2012 in Healthy Recipes | 1 comment

My magic oatmeal. It’s so delicious, satisfying, and incredibly filling. It has you start off the day feeling like you’re stuffed with nutrition, and also kind of like you’ve eaten a berry muffin but without the fat and calories.

Ingredients:

1 cup water
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
2/3 cup of oats
1-2 tbsp ground flax
1 banana
5 strawberries
cinnamon (to sprinkle)
5 walnuts
1 tbsp peanut butter (optional)

Directions:

Place the oats, flax, milk and water in a pot. Cook it on medium, stirring intermittently, for about 10-15 minutes (you have this time in the morning – how long do you spend doing your hair and makeup? You too, boys!) If you choose to add the natural peanut butter, add it about halfway through cooking time. When oats are done, all liquid will be gone and the oats will be soft.

Top with the fruit, walnuts and sprinkled cinnamon.

Makes 2 servings – and good luck finishing it, at that! :)

  1. Sounds amazing Jess. I like to do what I call a meusili- oats soaked in organic yogurt & milk in the fridge over night. I’m going to try this for a dairy free alternative. Thanks!
