The most filling and yummy breakfast!
I shared this in Instagram stories and I got so many DM’s about it- decided it needs a permanent place on my page!
This is how I make mine but of course, feel free to adapt yours however you like it!
OATMEAL: I use organic oats (from Bob’s Red Mill). The cooking ratio is 1 part oats, 2 parts water. For one person I’ll do 1/2 cup oats and 1 cup water. Put it on a small pot and cook over the stove for a few minutes, stirring often. It’s done once it thickens up. I love oatmeal because it has more protein and fiber than most other grains! And it’s so filling!
CHIA SEED PUDDING: mix one can of coconut milk (or 1 3/4 cup milk of choice or water) with 6 Tablespoons chia seeds, 1-2 Tablespoons of pure maple syrup and a teaspoon of vanilla. Mix together and let “gel” for at least 20 minutes. This can be stored in a glass jar in the fridge for up to five days. I pull it out in the mornings to put a generous scoop into our oatmeal. Allowing chia seeds to soak/gel before eating them releases enzyme inhibitors so they are more nutritious and digestible. I’m trying to get more chia seeds into myself and my kids- they are so high in fiber and Omegas.
YOGURT: use whatever kind you like, lately I’m loving the “Two Good” brand- because it has only 2 grams of sugar and 12 grams of protein.
BERRIES: yes please!
PEANUT BUTTER: I love the drippy peanut butter drizzled on top. 😍
GRANOLA: adds a nice little crunch to the top.
HONEY: you can either add it at the end or add some directly to your oats to give them a little sweetness.
Enjoy! This breakfast keeps me so full for hours and hours. And it’s so delicious.
