Welcome to your new winter breakfast staple! These morning oats are unlike your usual ‘run of the mill oatmeal’ – because they’re made with steel cut oats, giving them a creamy and chewy flavor which is so delicious & satisfying. The addition of raw cacao and coconut sugar gives a decadent Caramel-Chocolate flavor, while providing antioxidants and important minerals – with only 4g of sugar per serve (compared to around 20g of sugar for most ‘healthy’ breakfast cereals and many protein bars!)
Plus one serve of this nourishing breakfast will give you tons of slow release energy and more than 5 grams of fiber (or around 20% of your daily requirement). That fiber is your best friend when it comes to reaching a healthy weight without dieting – because you feel naturally full and satisfied (and you’ll eliminate bloating and constipation too).
Now, if you’re trying to watch your blood sugars, or lower your blood cholesterol or blood pressure, consider this: Oats, including steel cut oats, are high in a special type of soluble fiber which has been proven to help with reducing those blood numbers. And if you’re suffering from IBS or food allergies, then oats also contain a special type of resistant starch that feeds the GOOD bacteria in your stomach.
Best of all: You can prepare this in bulk for the week in under 10 minutes of prep time! Enjoy!
