How’s this for nutritious breakfast? This is a great way to start any day! Not only is it good for you but it tastes delicious. It’s easy to make and it yields 3 servings so you can have another two bowls stored in the fridge to warm up for the next few days.
The recipe is very versatile. Basically it’s just a place to get you started. You can swap out the milk for a different kind, and an alternate sweetener would work fine (agave, brown sugar, maple syrup). You could add nuts for crunch and another added protein. Bananas or any kind of berry would be a great compliment to this, or a nut butter would make it nice and creamy. I’d say always (or almost always) keep the cinnamon though because the cinnamon makes it feel like a breakfast cereal. I think next I want to try a coconut version, now that sounds amazing. Enjoy!
