Molasses-Spiked Chia Oatmeal
A super boost twist on traditional oatmeal…
Ingredients (serves 1):
1/2 C rolled oats (I use gluten free)
1 TBS chia seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp organic blackstrap molasses *
optional: chopped nuts or seeds, hemp seeds, dried fruit such as organic raisins or currants
1. Mix all ingredients well.
2. Add hot/boiling water. I also just use plain hot water from the Keurig machine).
3. Cover for 3-5 minutes. Serve after cooling.
Reheat: You can store leftovers in the fridge. When in fridge, the chia will make it all stick together, just add 1-3 TBS boiling water to make it smoother again.
*Note: I often add more molasses, but start with 1 tsp then you can slowly add more as your family begins to enjoy the strong taste.
