How Do You Oats?
A serving (1/2 cup dry) of rolled oats provides 5 g of protein, 27 g of carbs, as well as 4 g of soluble fibre, among other vital nutrients that help to lower bad cholesterol and all that good stuff!
One of my treatments for morning oats involves no cooking at all. I simply combine my oats with a bunch of my favourite ingredients and let it sit for about an hour (or overnight in the fridge if time is of the essence in the morning) which allows it to soften and be ready to eat.
1/2 cup whole grain rolled oats
2 tbsp ground flax
2 tbsp plain yogurt (I use full cream)
honey to taste
vanilla essence to taste
cinnamon to taste (I like a lot)
1/2 cup milk of your choice (I use either almond or goat’s milk)
fruit of your choice (I use banana, blueberries, strawberries, apple depending on availability)
nuts of your choice (I use mainly walnuts or pecans)
Measure oats into a bowl
Add ground flax, yogurt, honey, vanilla, cinnamon and milk
Cover and let sit for about an hour
If you prefer your oats thinner, then add some more milk or hot water if you like it hot
Top with fresh fruit and nuts
A very satisfying breakfast that keeps me going for many hours.
Hope you enjoy this really quick and easy breakfast!
