While trying to balance carbs and protein for breakfast some days (mostly on days I require more energy) I discovered a delicious breakfast. I would even go as far as saying my favorite breakfast these days. And super simple.
Gluten Free Oatmeal
- bring one cup of water to a boil.
add 1/2 cup of oats*
stir in one TBSP of nut butter. My current treat: hazelnut-almond butter.
— for sweetness, I sometimes stir in a drizzle of maple syrup
Cook on low for 7-10 minutes, keeping a close eye on it! (the nut butter makes it want to stick!)
top with plain yogourt and your choice of nuts + seeds.
Today’s version was pumpkin seeds + walnut. I change this up daily.
* for a gluten free option, use Gluten Free Oats.
and now that you’re all fueled up, step outside and spend some energy!
If you have favorite energy fueling breakfast, please do share in the comments! thank you!
