Hearty Chia Almond Butter Oatmeal with Goji Berries

Print

During the winter I love warm meals and I love oatmeal except I find that it leaves me hungry after just a few short hours. That is why I add protein, fiber and healthy fats to my oatmeal in this recipe through nut butter and seeds to boost the nutrition, fiber and flavor! I add the goji berries for an antioxidant boost and the red color adds some brightness to the bowl! I’ll also keep the leftovers in the fridge to simply reheat with a little added water in the microwave the next morning or for a snack in the afternoon, pre-workout!

Further Food Commentary:

This bowl of goodness provides all the three macronutrients to ensure satiety and energy! The complex carbohydrates from the grain and the heart-healthy fats and protein from the seeds/nuts allow for slow and steady digestion that will get you to lunch! This recipe can also be altered to many diets. If you are gluten-free, use gluten-free oats and if you are dairy-free or allergic to nuts switch up the liquid source (you can even just use good old water)!

    can’t go wrong with oats! I like that this version has hemp chia and almond in it. What a great sugar free breakfast option!

    I love this simple recipe. I had it for breakfast yesterday, and had to replace the goji berries with dried cranberries because that’s what I had in.. but it was still delicious! The chia really does absorb a lot of the liquid, so I ended up adding in some extra almond milk because I like my oatmeal a little creamier. All-in-all, a delicious and very filling breakfast! Kept me going ’til lunch.
