Good morning Friends! Are you a fan of making oatmeal? I am! I love having oats for breakfast because they are warm and comforting and are a go-to for me when I’m craving carbs. I make my bowl of oats gut-healthy by adding @vitalproteins collagen peptides to it and add extra nutrients by topping it with healthy foods such as hemp hearts for protein and goji berries for antioxidants. Making warm oats takes about 5-7 minutes every morning, so it’s a quick, satisfying breakfast.
You can also adjust the consistency to your liking. You can add more liquid or less liquid depending on whether you like your oats on the thicker side, or if you like them runny. I prefer my oats thicker so I add less liquid. The oats still cook well and, in my opinion are more satisfying because of the thick consistency. Check out the recipe below!
½ cup @bobsredmill gluten free rolled oats
Scant one cup of @lovemysilk Almond Milk (you can sub another nut milk or use water)
1 teaspoon @simplyorganicfoods vanilla extract
Dash of @simplyorganicfoods ceylon cinnamon
1 scoop @vitalproteins collagen peptides
½ a green-tipped banana (I prefer my bananas green-tipped because they are less sweet)
1 tablespoon goji berries
¼ cup plain Greek Yogurt
1 tablespoon runny almond butter
1 tablespoon hemp hearts
Add the oats, cinnamon, vanilla, and almond milk to a saucepan and cook per the package directions. Once the oats are cooked, add the collagen peptides and mix to combine. Pour the oats into a bowl and top with the bananas, goji berries, yogurt, almond butter, and hemp hearts. Remember, you can top your bowl of oats with ANYTHING. What do you top your oats with? Comment below, I’d love some inspo!
