I thought I would change things up a bit this morning, while making breakfast for my son. So I added cherries to his oatmeal for a little zing! Antioxidant-rich cherries are also loaded with beta-carotene and vitamin C. To boost the protein content, I added some organic hemp seeds. Let me know how yours turns out, I would love to hear from you!
1 cup of organic rolled oats (not instant)
1 1/2 cups of filtered water
1/4 cup of plant based milk
1/4 tsp. of pure vanilla extract
1 Tbs. of organic raw shelled hemp seeds
1 Tbs. of raw honey
1 banana (for topping)
Combine oats, milk , and water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Lower heat, add cherries and vanilla extract and let simmer for about 5 to 10 minutes. Right before serving, stir in the hemp seeds and honey and add some banana for topping. I wait to add these ingredients so the heat doesn’t reduce their nutritional value 🙂 My son added some cinnamon after I cut up some banana for him.
