DIY SUPERFOOD INSTANT OATMEAL
There are two different ways to enjoy this Superfood Oatmeal:
- HOT: Almost every hotel or Airbnb offers access to hot water, whether through a Keurig or other coffee maker, a stove and pot, a microwave or even just really hot tap water. Simply pour your Superfood oats in a heat-proof mug, bowl or other cup (I’ve even used high-ball glasses!). If using a stove top, cover with water (about 1/2 inch above oat line) and cook, stirring, on low until absorbed. If using a microwave, cover with water (about 1 inch above oat line) and microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, until absorbed. I suggest using a larger bowl or cup with the microwave so it doesn’t bubble over. If using water from a Keurig or coffee maker or tap, just pour hot water over oats just barely above the oat line and allow to sit 5 minutes, covered with a napkin or towel. Then stir and add splashes of water as desired.
- COLD: My favorite way to enjoy these when I have access to a fridge is to turn it into overnight oats. You can keep it simple and just pour the oats into a mug/bowl etc. and stir in enough water that the mixture is the consistency of a thick smoothie; not watery but thinner than oatmeal consistency. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour overnight and enjoy! If you have more time and access however; you can pick up a small container of nut milk and use that instead of water.
For either method, you can certainly add fresh fruit and other toppings. My favorite combinations are almond butter with fresh raspberries and peanut butter with sliced banana.
1/2 cup instant oats (I used Quaker, linked below)
2 teaspoons chia seeds
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 scoop protein powder of choice (I either Super Elixir flavor, linked below)
2 teaspoons coconut flakes
pinch sea salt (1/8th tsp)
1 teaspoon coconut sugar (optional but I think it adds the perfect balance)
Optional: 4″x6″ plastic baggies (linked below)
- Place all ingredients in a baggie or container of choice. Seal and shake to incorporate. Will keep for 1 month at room temperature. Make as many as you like!
