I’m sure no one wants to hear about the 3-day “cleanse” I did, so this is going to be a short post. I will say that part of the cleanse included oatmeal, which I already love and I have continued eating it so I will share that recipe.
Make this the night before and refrigerate it. On the cleanse I think I was supposed to eat it cold, which I did the first day. But come on. It’s January, I want a hot breakfast.
1 cup almond milk *
1/3 cup oats
1 T chia seeds
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup blueberries
Mix in a bowl before bed, cover, refridgerate
In the morning, microwave for 30-60 seconds.
*I have been using almond milk because I bought it for my “cleanse” but I will switch to regular milk now that I have run out. I have been experimenting with chia, and this recipe has the best results so far. It’s very filling and I have been able to live on this until lunch time. I have also substituted the blueberries for cut up apple. (I cut the apple in the morning.) This recipe has more milk and fewer oats than what I normally make, but I like it better.
I am going to be honest and say I never sweeten my oatmeal, so if you like your oatmeal sweet, this may not be for you. However, the enormous amount of cinnamon did make it taste sweet to me. I did the full teaspoon during the cleanse, but have cut it in half since then.
Don’t worry, real FBF will be back next week. I have something delicious cooking right now.
That doesn’t sound too horrible. The fruit would sweeten it a little right? Do you use steel cut oats or regular?
I used old fashioned oats, not quick oats or steel cut. But I am going to try it with steel cut oats next. The recipe actually called for “raw oats” which I assumed was uncooked old fashioned oats.
