Wild Blueberry Chia Oatmeal

For a super simple, quick and healthy breakfast, make the oats ahead of time.  If blueberries aren’t your favorite, change it up with another fruit, such as frozen peaches, raspberries or strawberries. Enjoy!

What You Need:

1 1/2 cups water-cooked steel cut oats (about 1/4 cup dry oats + 1 1/4 cups water + pinch salt)
2 tsp chia seeds
dash cinnamon
1 tsp ground flax seeds
1 1/2 Tbsp raw chopped walnuts
1 tsp goji berries
1/2 cup wild blueberries, frozen + 1 Tbsp hot water to thaw and plump
1/4 cup almond or soy milk
1/2 tsp agave syrup

What You Do:

* For ease, you can make the oatmeal in a larger batch (1 cup oats + 4 cups water + 1/2 tsp salt). Then use pre-cooked oats throughout the week and heat over the stove.

* You can add the chia seeds, half of the walnuts, goji berries, flax and cinnamon halfway through the cooking process if making in a large batch. Otherwise, add the pre-cooked oats to a pan with a splash of almond or soy milk, or water to rehydrate a bit. Then fold those ingredients into the oats. Simmer until warm and soft. Add more liquid as desired.

* Top the cooked oats with walnuts, the blueberries, a few more chia seeds, a splash of soy milk and agave right before serving.
