Want more than the standard Oatmeal?
This yummy breakfast had:
•Oat groats, Raw – soaked overnight in dehydrator
•Almonds, Raw – soaked overnight on the counter, skins come off the wet nuts on their own while being chopped for a nice smooth texture.
•Cashew milk, Raw
•Bowl of fruit
Wild Maine blueberries
Half a banana
*i put the fruit bowl in the dehydrator for a few minutes while making the cashew milk and it thawed the blueberries just perfectly.
•Pecan Streusel (optional) – pecans, coconut sugar, coconut oil – blended together. Streusel was leftover from my Apple pie.
This dense bowl of nutrients was easily enough for 2!
If you don’t have a dehydrator, putting the the oat groats in warm water to soak overnight works too.
If Raw Oats are too much for you right now, no worries, you’ll still get loads of benefits from cooking your oats, plus all the added “extras”. I suggest Rolled Oats as Oat groats need a longer cooking time.
While you can get cashew milk at the store, fresh is sooo much tastier and doesn’t have preservatives, fillers and sugar. Plus, the % of nuts you’re getting isn’t listed on the label but I assure you it’s WAY less than homemade, closer to 6% according to an article I read. Homemade is 25% and so easy to make!
