Sometimes I get overly excited about how much health you can cram into one meal. 🙂 This one features an old-time favorite ingredient of mine, hemp seeds.
They are normally kind of expensive, so you can imagine my excitement at finding them half price at Whole Foods Market. They are high in Omega-3 fats, protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals…they’ve got it all. And a super unique taste.
Overnight oats typically require 1 part oats, 1 part yogurt, and 1 part milk. But I find it works well without the yogurt, and with vegan milk. I use almond milk here.
Such a quick, filling, and nutritious breakfast!
- 1/4 cup whole rolled oats
- 1/4 cooked quinoa (optional)
- 1 tbs hemp seeds
- 1 tbs chia seeds
- 1 tbs ground flaxseed
- 1 tbs oat bran
- 2/3-1 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup yogurt of choice (optional)
Just mix everything in a bowl, and wait til morning! Top with whatever you like — fruit, nut butter or nuts, granola, dried fruit, cinnamon, maple syrup or honey, etc. This makes one hearty serving (or two smaller ones), and is best served with coffee. 🙂
