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.
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
- p.s. I didn’t claim to be a recipe maker ok?? ☺
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 ♥
