I ran out of my favorite breakfast foods this morning and had no milk on hand for my raw granola, so I improvised quick before I got too hungry and reached for something that would not nourish me as positively as this did. I call this Raw Oatmeal because it had the look and consistency of oatmeal and left me feeling full for hours the way oatmeal would. But it was way faster to make than boiled oats and in my opinion, much more nutritious.
Although I could just have eaten fruit and nuts or nut butter, which I believe can be a satisfying breakfast, some days I feel the need to sit down and eat something out of a bowl, with a spoon, to make me appreciate what I am eating. And today is one of those days. As usual, sorry for the photograph, this tasted much better than the photo looks, I promise 🙂
As it so often happens, I made this on the fly without writing down or taking specific measurements, so below is an estimation of what I put in this tasty bowl. I am already seeing all the substitutions and possibilities with this that having just one recipe would be so limiting 😉
- 1 large apple
- 1 banana
- 1 chunk of ginger
- 1 TBS sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup walnuts
- 1 TBS almond butter
- 1 TBS shredded coconut (for topping)
- Put everything in the food processor and combine until desired consistency
- Top with coconut and enjoy!
