pre-fall oats ♥

If you know me at all, you know that I am obsessed with breakfast.  Savory or sweet, I am all over that.  It’s really nice to find friends that loves breakfast food just as much as I do.. and that’s where Emily comes in.  Or at least I think she likes breakfast food as much as I do? ☺

Today, we whipped up a fast and easy oatmeal recipe that is so easy and so savory that it might turn non breakfast eaters into … breakfast eaters? ☺ We made a big enough batch that should last you the whole week! (If you’re reading this today, Sunday 09/11, check out our instagram stories for even more fun when we were preparing this ☺ I will link our IG handles below!)

So I think I will call this … pre-fall oatmeal bowl?  just a thought.. the name needs work.

pre-fall oats

 

Base Ingredients:

2 cups of gluten free oats (we used Trader Joe’s brand!)
1-2 cups of unsweetened almond milk
1 cup of cut up plums
1/2 cup of cut up black figs
2 tbs of chia seeds
2 tbs of flax seeds
1-2 tbs of cinnamon (If you’re Emily though, she will try to put a whole container of cinnamon in there ☺)

  • Add the oats and almond milk into a pot and bring to a boil.. then stir!
  • lower heat down to a simmer // add plums and figs
  • stir until sticky consistency (5-7 mins)
  • add chia seeds and flax seeds
  • add cinnamon
  • serve into a bowl
  • VOILA!
  • p.s. I didn’t claim to be a recipe maker ok??  ☺

with all the toppings!

You can top your bowl with whatever toppings you want!  The possibilities are endless!
Emily topped hers with:  coconut shavings, almond shavings, and “a little bit of cashew butter”.  I topped mine with banana slices, blueberries, almonds, coconut shavings, more chia seeds and a dollop of cashew butter.  The green stuff in the previous picture is the Amazing Grass Green Superfood that I sometimes add to my oats too just not this time around.  Scoop up the rest into mason jars and you are set for the week!

Ok leave me a comment if you try this recipe or just leave me a comment letting my know your favorite oat toppings.  Or just leave me a comment to say hi!  I would love to hear from you ♥
