Super Oats with Chia Seeds, Hemp Seeds + Cinnamon

Super Oats with Chia Seeds, Hemp Seeds + Cinnamon

I love oats as a good, filling breakfast! Oats are a great choice because they are a whole grain and can help to keep you feeling full, compared to a regular, sugar-bomb cereal. With oats, you can add so many things to them, from making them sweet with fruit and stevia to making them savory by using bone broth and toppings like caramelized onions and eggs. This recipe is one of my favorites because it includes a dash of cinnamon, hemp seeds, and chia seeds!  Chia seeds and hemp seeds are an amazing super food and full of protein and fiber, a MUST add to your grocery list. 

This recipe works well with so many toppings. Here are some amazing combinations ideas: 1 banana, ½ tsp honey, and ½ tsp ground cinnamon 1/2 cup blueberries and 1 tbsp almond butter 1/2 cup mixed berries and 1/4 cup natural yogurt 1/2 cup blueberries, zest of ½ lemon and 1/4 natural yogurt 200g rhubarb stewed with fresh orange juice and 1 tsp honey (don’t worry, the rhubarb reduces quite a bit!) ½ scoop protein powder, 1 tsp natural peanut butter and a pinch of cacao nibs
