Warm breakfast oats

This is my absolute go-to breakfast recipe on a cold winter morning. As a treat I often eat this in bed with a mug of warm tea. There's just something really comforting about a bowl of warm oats in the wintertime. It's the ideal breakfast before I head out for a long morning run, as it gives me just the right amount of fuel and energy.

I like to serve it with bananas but you could use other fruits such as blueberries or strawberries.

INGREDIENTS:

 

1 cup oats

2 tbsp walnuts

1 banana

1/2 cup plant milk

1 tsp chia seeds

1-2 tsp soft brown sugar (optional)

In a breakfast bowl, add the oats and chia seeds, then pour the plant milk in and mix together. Add in a little soft brown sugar if you'd like to make it a bit sweeter.

Blitz in the microwave for 60-90 seconds (or until warm enough), adding a little more plant milk if needed. 

Serve with sliced banana on top and a handful of chopped walnuts.
