Oats are rich in complex carbohydrates and full of fibre.
This recipe is a great base to add lots of toppings for extra texture and nutrients making it a great satiating breakfast which can be made in advance.
Serves 2 (you can double the recipe and it will keep in the fridge for a couple of days)
1 mug of oats
1.5 mugs of plant-based milk (I like oat milk)
3 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tsp of cinnamon or cardamom
Protein/good fat toppings per bowl: 1 tbsp of ground flaxseeds, 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds, 1 tbsp sunflower seeds, 1 tbsp hemp seeds 1 tbsp desiccated coconut or 1 tbsp nut butter
Fruit topping per bowl: Handful of berries (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries), a sliced kiwi or a sliced apple
Mash the banana in a mixing bowl.
Add the oats, plant-based milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon/cardamom powder, chia seeds and stir well.
Store in the fridge for a couple of hours or make the night before.
When ready to eat, place in a bowl and serve with 1-3 of the protein/good fats toppings and 1 fruit topping.
Enjoy! Michelle x
