THIS! You’ve got to try it, especially if you’re someone who loves traditional carby breakfast foods, but hates being hungry 30 minutes later, or that full-body exhaustion blood sugar crash. That used to be me, every day of my life, since I grew up eating cereal for breakfast. Who can blame my parents? It was the easiest help-yourself thing they could give me when I’d wake up way too early.
But this oatmeal? It’s full of satisfying healthy heart and brain boosting fats – omega-3 and omega-9, lots of fiber, and cinnamon to help balance blood sugar. You need this in your life.
This recipe is for a single serving. You can make it when you’re hungry, or be really kind to your future self and make up little single serving packets.. OR make a huge 10x batch without the almond milk and scoop out 1/2 a cup at breakfast time.. Yessssss!
Top it with some homemade cashew-coconut yogurt and defrosted blueberries (they’re the best because they get all ooey-gooey juicy delicious).
- 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1 tablespoon coconut flour
- 2 teaspoons Lakanto sweetener, erythritol, or 2 drops stevia
- 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds (or other nuts or seeds)
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- pinch of nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond or cashew milk
- Stovetop: Mix all ingredients together and heat in a saucepan over medium-low heat until simmering. Allow to cool for 2-3 minutes to thicken. Transfer to a bowl and top with your favorite toppings.
