I bought a breakfast sandwich the other day.  It cost more than $4  and I was kind of shocked! I guess it has been a while since I’ve bought a ‘simple’ breakfast.

A couple years ago, I started making a quick oatmeal for the mornings so I’d never be without breakfast. I got the idea from Tosca Reno’s Eat Clean Diet Recharged. (I picked it up on super-sale at Chapters and the oatmeal recipe is about the only thing I’ve really used from it.)

Now, we prepare it every night for all 3 of us to eat in the morning.

Here’s the basic recipe

1/4c Thick rolled oats aka Old Fashioned Oats (My husband like 1/3c and we give out daughter about 2tbl.)

pinch of salt

dash of cinnamon

raisins

chopped nuts

chia seeds

diced Granny Smith apples

In the morning, I cover with boiling hot water from the kettle, cover with a plate and let it sit for 10 minutes.  You’ll have to experiment with how much water you use depending on how much chia you put in and the brand of rolled oats that you use.

It’s super simple and you can add other ‘mix-ins’ too! (Blue berries are a nice addition.)

Give it a try!
