Wild Blueberry Chia Oatmeal

Make the oats ahead of time for a quick, easy and healthy breakfast.  If blueberries aren’t your favorite, sub with raspberries or strawberries. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups water-cooked steel cut oats (about 1/4 cup dry oats + 1 1/4 cups water + pinch salt)
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • dash cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground flax seeds
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp raw chopped walnuts
  • 1 tsp goji berries
  • 1/2 cup wild blueberries, frozen + 1 Tbsp hot water to thaw and plump
  • 1/4 cup almond milk

Directions:

  1. For ease, you can make the oatmeal in a larger batch (1 cup oats + 4 cups water + 1/2 tsp salt). Then use your pre-cooked oats throughout the week and heat over the stove.
  2. Add the chia seeds, half of the walnuts, goji berries, flax and cinnamon halfway through the cooking process if making in a large batch.
  3. Otherwise, add the pre-cooked oats to a pan with a splash of almond milk or water to rehydrate a bit. Then fold those ingredients into the oats. Simmer until warm and soft. Add more liquid as desired.
  4. Top the cooked oats with walnuts, the blueberries, a few more chia seeds, and a splash of almond milk right before serving.
