Plants never tasted so good.


Oatmeal, all dressed up!

Posted by Sinfully Nutritious


Most people think oatmeal is boring.  They want something “bright” for breakfast.  While I mostly enjoy oatmeal as a snack, this morning I felt I needed something warm and cozy.  Great oatmeal is all about the toppings.  It’s the difference between plain vanilla ice cream and vanilla ice cream at a toppings bar. 

This oatmeal was whole rolled oats, no instant.  Yes, you do have time.  It only takes 3-5 minutes and tastes so much better, and it is so much healthier too.  I cooked the oats in water and in the last few seconds of cook time I stirred in a scoop of vanilla protein powder.  Stir really well until totally blended.  This adds protein, vitamins, minerals and sweetness. Then stir in some cinnamon. 

Now for the toppings.  A drizzle of agave nectar, 1 teaspoon chia seeds, 1 tablespoon almond butter, a generous helping of unsweetened shredded coconut, and for great crunch, a few tablespoons of multigrain granola. Delish.  More like dessert than breakfast.  Now, does that sound boring? This should keep anyone full a long time.
