I've been making oatmeal lately. It's an easy breakfast option, but needs a little something sweet and moist to taste just right. Instead of the typical milk and brown sugar I've gone with natural sugar through fruit for the sweet and the moist.
2/3 cup whole oats
1 1/3 cup water, plus 1/3 cup water
1 banana, mashed
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon flax seeds
1/2 cup frozen wild blueberries
In a sauce pan bring water to a boil. Add oats and bring back to a boil. Reduce heat to low.
Stir occasionally for 3-5 minutes until oatmeal is cooked.
While oatmeal is cooking in a separate saucepan over high heat cook 1/3 cup water and blueberries. Cook on high until a syrup forms in the water and the blueberries are warm. (2-3 minutes)
Add mashed banana, chia and flax to the oatmeal.
Place oatmeal in bowls and top with blueberry coulis. (serves 2)
