Loaded oats

from the eat clean diet Cookbook.

Ingredients

2 c Old fashioned oatmeal, uncooked (not instant)
4 tbsp nut butter of your choice. ( Peanut, almond, cashew…) I used almond
2 c skim milk, or milk alternative of your choice (almond, soy, rice, etc.)..I used Almond milk
2 c water
2 scoops best-quality protein powder, flavor of your choice  I used GNC’s Virtually tasteless protein powder that is recommended for cooking
4 tbsp coarsely ground flax seeds (you can use a coffee grinder)
1 tsp cinnamon And added a banana some mashed up when I was ready to eat it

Preparation:

1. Bring the cups of liquid (milk+water) to a simmer in a saucepan.
2. Add remaining ingredients except flax-seed (I added in my ground flax – if you use seeds, you can sprinkle them over the whole thing when done).
3. Cook gently for 3-5 minutes until mixture becomes uniform and thick.
Enjoy!

**Tip: You can prepare this on busy mornings too! Just prepour your milk and water into a measuring cup and stick in the fridge til morning. Premix all your dry ingredients – the cinnamon, flax, protein powder and oatmeal – in another container and refrigerate. Just add the nut butter in while cooking, and 5 minutes later you’re done!  I have even made it in a batch and we just add banana and some almond milk,  heat it up and then sprinkle the ground flax seeds.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and so often skipped.  Oatmeal is a great source of nutrition filled with soluble and insoluble pant fiber, helps moderate blood sugar levels and very helpful in lowering cholesterol!!!
