Today was one of those days where I just woke up starving! So I went with one of my favorite satisfying breakfasts – oats! Now don’t stop reading because you think oats are boring. Just take a look at Kath’s Tribute to Oatmeal page and I promise you will change your mind.
Let 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk come to a boil, add in 1/2 cup of oats, reduce to a simmer, and let it cook for 5 minutes. That’s it!
I also typically mix in some protein powder about 2-3 minutes into the cooking time, so there’s still some liquid to absorb it. I know it’s best to get protein from whole food sources, but since I don’t eat a ton of meat I mix this stuff into oats, smoothies, and some baking projects.
Just like with yogurt, the mix-in options for oats are endless. Today I rolled with strawberries, 1/2 a banana, and some shredded coconut.
Do you eat oats often? What are your favorite mix-ins?
