A back to basics breakfast – tasty, sweet, and energizing!
Prep & Cooking: 10-15 mins
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats (not quick oats) prepared as per the package directions
½ cup sliced or slivered almonds, lightly toasted
1 cup fresh blueberries – if you don’t have fresh and are using frozen allow them to thaw for around 30 minutes or microwave for 45-50 seconds
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of salt
Brown sugar or maple syrup to top (optional)
Shelled hemp seeds or chia seeds to top (optional)
In a large saucepan, prepare the oats using package directions.
Add ½ cup of the fresh blueberries and cook uncovered for an additional 2-3 minutes; stirring frequently and allowing for the blueberries to pop open and soften with the heat.
You may need to add additional water or plant-milk a tablespoon at a time if the mixture becomes too thick.
When the oats are cooked through, remove from the heat and add the vanilla, cinnamon, and ½ of the toasted almonds. Stir to combine. Top with remaining berries, almonds, hemp seeds, and maple syrup.
