Energizing Morning Oatmeal

Mix up this quck, delicious, and warming breakfast with lots of flavor and heartiness. Combining the peanut butter with the oats makes a complete protein.

*Pour into microwavable bowl:

-1/2 c. oats
-2 tsp. flaxseed
-1 heaping Tbsp. craisins or raisins OR 1/4 c. diced apple
-1 heaping Tbsp. walnuts or pecans
-1/2 tsp. cinnamon
-1/2 c. milk of your choice (almond, rice, coconut, etc.)

*Microwave for 1 min.
*Add 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
*Microwave for 30 seconds (just until coconut oil is melted)
*Stir in 1 Tbsp. of peanut butter, almond butter, or sunflower seed butter
*Sprinkle with another dash of cinnamon.
*Enjoy! 🙂

(You may need to add more milk depending on what kind of oats you use. Quick cooking oats tend to absorb more moisture, resulting in a creamier texture and a little extra milk needed. Old-fashioned oats tend to absorb less moisture and remain more separated, so you shouldn’t need extra milk.)
