A hearty serving of oatmeal is always our go-to way to start the day. Oats are a great source for vitamins, minerals, fibers and antioxidants. But, oats themselves are sadly quite boring. To spice things up, we usually add dried fruits, a variety of seeds, spices and fresh fruits - all with their own nutrition superpowers.
We experimented with swapping out the hot water used for oatmeal with brewed tea, and the flavor blew us away! We like to pre-make the dried mix, to make mornings even easier. There are endless variations to this easy, quick and extraordinarily healthy breakfast, here's our most recent go-to.
SERVINGS: 2 / TOTAL TIME: 20 minutes
2 brew cups of Bulang Raw tea
1 cup oats
1/2 tsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp maca powder
small handful of raisins or craisins
handful of blueberries
1/2 an apple cut into small cubes
1 tsp cinnamon powder
Prepare the tea: Brew 2 cups (16 ounces) of Bulang Raw
Put the brewed tea into a saucepan and bring to a low boil
Add fresh fruits (blueberries and apple cubes) to the water for 2 minutes
Add oats, seeds, dried fruits and spices to the pan and lower heat to a simmer
Stir frequently and let the oats absorb the tea and soften the other ingredients
Remove from heat when it looks thick and fluffy (around 10 minutes) and serve
Feel free to add more fresh fruit to the top to add a little temperature difference and texture
Enjoy with a cup of Bulang Raw!
