Do you ever get breakfast block? You know, those times when you want to eat something delicious for breakfast but you don’t know what to make. In moments of breakfast block I’ve started to make this delicious oatmeal. Oatmeal is great to eat because oats are nutritious, rich in antioxidants, contain fiber, can lower cholesterol levels, and improve blood sugar control. I’ve always liked oatmeal with brown sugar but this recipe takes this fiber packed meal to a whole new level. Here’s what I add to my oatmeal to make it extra tasty:
Trader Joes Maple and Brown Sugar Packets
I like using oatmeal packets because the portion size is perfect. If you want your oatmeal to be as healthy as possible, I would use plain oats without sugar and preservative added. If you’re willing to cheat a little, I recommend using this pack from Trader Joe’s.
Any type of milk will do but I like using almond milk because it’s naturally dairy free, high in Vitamin E, a good source of calcium, and has a decent amount of potassium. I warm my milk on the stove so it can get nice and hot for my oatmeal. After it’s warmed up, I pour it over the oats.
Flaxseeds are great to add with oatmeal because they’re loaded with nutrients. They are high in Omega-3 fats, rich in fiber, improves Cholesterol, lowers blood pressure and contains protein.
Throwing granola in oatmeal is a tasty way to spice up the dish. This probiotic granola is a delicious way to improve gut health and digestion.
Berries give oatmeal a really fresh taste. I like adding blackberries and blueberries because they are loaded in antioxidants and fight inflammation.
The last (and tastiest) step is to add peanut butter. I put about a teaspoon of peanut butter in my oatmeal because it’s not only delicious but also contains healthy fats and is filling.
