Who said your morning oats had to be bland?
There are so many reasons why fit girls reach for oats in the morning. Not only are they one of the easiest and quickest breakfasts to whip up (especially if you prep your oats the night before), but they also happen to be loaded with protein and fibre that helps your digestion and aids weight loss.
While oats are a go-to brekkie for many of us (including the WH staffers), they can get a little… boring. But if you dress them up with healthy toppings, you get a meal that’s not only good for you, but looks good to (hello, Instagram #foodporn).
Now if you’ve been looking for a few ways to pimp your oats in the morning, you’re in luck! We’ve rounded up a few oat recipes to inspire you.
Sticky, sweet and oh-so-tasty! This recipe was literally made for cold winter mornings. The combination of honey-roasted pears and spices make the most delicious caramel-like sauce for your breakfast bowl.
A power bowl of oats baked with eggs, peanut butter, and soy milk packs enough protein to keep you satisfied until long past your lunch hour.
We’re all about the prep! These oven-baked oats can be cooked ahead of time (perfect for those busy weekday mornings). The sea salt creates a deliciously sweet-salty finish when adding maple syrup or brown sugar. Yum!
This raw oat breakfast bowl will liven up your breakfast – and boost your energy naturally.
FYI – You don’t even need to soak these oats overnight. 30 Minutes is all it takes to make this healthy bircher bowl with yoghurt, a drizzle of honey and nuts.
Matcha – a superfood, green tea extract – has a distinct and rich flavour that’ll take your porridge from ordinary to out-of-this-world delicious.
