I have three breakfasts that I rotate through. Every morning I treat myself to one of the following : a green smoothie, steel cut oats and berries, or toasted oatmeal, with flax seed and berries. They’re all delicious, and I thought I’d share the latter, because the sun was shining so nicely in my kid’s nursery (aka photo studio) last saturday before I ate, that I just had to take pictures of something. That, and it’s really delicious.
Toasted oatmeal with flax seed, berries and yogurt:
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1 Tablespoon flax seed
1 T almond slivers
1/2 cup berries (I usually use the frozen berries from Costco
1/3 cup greek yogurt. I use the Fage fat free kind, but do whatever your heart tells you is best.
splash of vanilla
sweeter to taste (I use a dusting, and I mean just the tiniest little skiff of pure stevia.
Spread your oatmeal, flax seed and almonds out on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil. Set your oven on broil, and then pop it in and watch closely. It only takes like a minute. You’ll hear the flax seed popping and your kids will ask you if your making popcorn. Take it out when it’s nice and toasty brown. In a bowl mix your yogurt with vanilla and sweetner, then pour your dry toasted oats etc. over and top with your berries (defrost them if they’re frozen!) This is so rico. That’s Spanish for delicious. So good. Tasty, yummy, guilty indulgence. The crunchy texture with creamy yogurt and tart berries is The Bomb, and yes I felt it necessary to capitalize that.
I would LOVE to hear you’re healthy and delicious favorite breakfast. I’d be thrilled to a throw something else in the rotation. Feel free to leave a link in your comment!
