Nutrient Loaded Oatmeal

A steaming bowl of healthy, fresh-cooked oatmeal is a perfect way to warm yourself on cold winter mornings. But remember, all oatmeal isn’t created equal.

Instant oatmeal is often loaded with unnecessary sugars and should be avoided. Instead, take an extra five minutes and use organic rolled oats.

This tasty oatmeal recipe is loaded with fiber, vitamins C, K, E, B1, and manganese. It also offers the added bonus of over half of the daily value for hard-to-find omega-3 fatty acids and adding almond meal lends protein to the dish, making it a well-balanced and delicious breakfast.

Ingredients

2-1/4 cups water

dash sea salt

1 cup organic rolled oats

1 tbsp almond meal

1/4 cup chopped walnuts

1 tbsp ground flaxseeds

1/4 cup blueberries (or any fruit of choice)

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp blackstrap molasses

1 cup milk or dairy-free milk alternative

Directions

Combine the water and salt in a small saucepan and turn the heat to high. When the water boils, turn the heat to low, add oatmeal, and cook, stirring until the water is just absorbed, about five minutes. Mix in the almond meal, walnuts, flaxseeds, blueberries and cinnamon. Cover the pan, turn off the heat and let it set for five minutes. Serve with milk and molasses.

Serves two.
