Fall 'n Oats.....Quick Vegan Super Power Rolled Oatmeal

Brrrr...It was a true fall morning!  The whole family was tucked under the down comforter trying to escape the cool, fall morning breeze.  I was reaming my brain what to make for breakfast, but nothing really sounded fitting, until I thought of some comforting and warming oatmeal!

Hearty, warm and filling.  Plus, to give it that extra nutrient/power packed start to the day, I added in chia seeds and flax seeds.  More protein, more fiber and rich in Omega-3 fatty acids.  Great start to the day!  And, you truly have a complete meal here...made in under 5 minutes:  Oats, seeds, nuts, fruit and vegan "dairy"...Bam!!

Quick Vegan Super Power Rolled Oatmeal

Ingredients/Directions: (serves 2)
1/2 c rolled oats
1/2 c almond milk (or your preferred nondairy milk)
1/2 c water
2 tbsp raw agave nectar
1 tbsp brown sugar (optional)
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 tbsp flax seeds
1 banana sliced
1/4 c dried cranberries
1/4 c raw chopped walnuts
2 tsp cinnamon

In a pot, add in oats, almond milk, water, chia seeds, and flax seeds.  Bring to boil and then turn to low.  Stir frequently.  Add in agave nectar and brown sugar (optional).  Stir until mixed thoroughly.  Add in remaining ingredients and cook for about 5 minutes.  Done and done and yum and yum!
