Breakfast for dinner anyone? I love eating loaded oats for any meal of the day when I'm pressed for time. It's a wholesome meal that will keep you satisfied for hours. This method leaves the oats with a firmer and chewy texture so it's perfect for those that don't like mushy oatmeal (my husband :). Switch up the toppings to keep it interesting! Vegan, GF.
1/2 cup boiling water
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 tablespoon peanut butter (or almond butter)
1/2-1 tablespoon cacao powder (or unsweetened cocoa)
½ tablespoon flaxseed meal
½-1 tablespoon raw honey (or pure maple syrup)
FOR SERVING, OPTIONAL
Fresh strawberries, sliced
Unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Add the boiling water, oats, peanut butter and cacao to a breakfast bowl and stir until well combined. Microwave for 1-2 minutes.
Cover with a plate while you prepare your toppings.
Remove plate and stir in flaxseed meal, honey/maple syrup and optional almond milk.
Add your favorite toppings like strawberries, bananas, coconut and chia seeds. Enjoy!
