1 cup water
1/2 cup oats
handful dried raisins or dates
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon blackstrap molasses
unsweetened nondairy milk, as desired (I use hemp or soy)
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
1 tablespoon vanilla or plain rice protein powder
1 to 2 tablespoons raw wheat germ
handful raw nuts, chopped
1. Cook the oats with water according to instructions on the container.
2. During the last two minutes add the dried fruit, cinnamon and molasses.
3. When oats are finished, pour into bowl, and add nondairy milk and all other ingredients. Take care to add raw ingredients last as they are sensitive to heat.
Simple, I know, but very nourishing. Great for everyone, especially athletes! You can use last nights leftover brown rice or quinoa for variety.
