Nutty Oatmeal



Oats are naturally gluten free and have a great amount of fiber which binds to cholesterol and helps remove it out of the body. Oats also contain selenium, magnesium and zinc and are beneficial for digestion and boosting your immune system.  When choosing oats, make sure they have no added sugar, flavourings or preservatives. We will be sweetening our oatmeal with natural sweeteners such as fruits and honey.
 Let’s get started!


Ingredients:

  • 1/3 steel cut oats
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tsp ground flax seeds
  • 1/2 frozen banana

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • Pinch of cloves
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 scoop of protein powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 5 toasted sliced almonds
  • Cacao nibs

Instructions:

  1. Bring water to boil.
  2. Add all the ingredients except honey, almonds and cacao nibs.
  3. Stir and cook on low heat until oats are soft. Add more water if needed.
  4. Transfer into a serving bowl, pour the honey and sprinkle with almonds and cacao nibs.
