After A Warming, Hearty Breakfast? No Oat Oatmeal Is Your Answer!
If you haven’t tried it yet, noatmeal is the bomb!
Take the oats out of oatmeal and replace them with the goodness of ground almonds, coconut, flax and chia seeds and you have a warm, hearty, low-carb breakfast that’s just as satisfying as it is nutritious!
A bowl of this noatmeal will keep you going until lunch time with plenty of protein and healthy fats (including omega 3’s) to keep you full and satisfied.
Thanks to the chia and flax seeds, it’s also high in dietary fibre which helps to regulate your blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
It’s also essential for a healthy digestive system and aids in weight loss by supressing your hunger and cravings.
Coconut milk has a great vitamin and mineral profile including vitamin C, E, B6 and calcium.
However, if you’re trying to lose weight, try this recipe with water instead for a lower calorie option that’s still deliciously creamy!
Top this noatmeal off with antioxidant rich blueberries and walnuts that promote a healthy brain and heart and know that you’ve started your day in the very best way!
It’s also perfect to reheat so make a big batch at the weekend for effortless weekday breakfasts.
