I’ve made this recipe a number of times, for myself and as part of a food demo for different groups. It’s great because the recipe can me modified using ingredients that you like. If you don’t have a particular spice listed below just leave it out. I’ve given the original recipe a boost by adding in protein powder to make it more balanced in terms of carbohydrates, protein and fat. There are no excuses for not eating breakfast!
1 C. Old fashioned oats
3 Tbs. Chia seeds (they are packed with fiber!)
2 Tbsp. Maple syrup (or honey or agave or no sweetener at all!)
1 Scoop protein powder (I use unflavored but you could use whatever you prefer)
3/4 tsp. Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
1/4 tsp. Ginger
1/8 tsp. Clove
1 2/3- 1 1/5 C. Almond milk (or regular milk, soy, etc.)
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until fully combined.
- place in refrigerator overnight.
- Add a fruit (dried or fresh) or nut topping the next day and enjoy!
