My amateur photography talents don't do this oatmeal justice. It doesn't look like much here, but up close in real life it looks oh so yummy.

  • Organic whole oats, ground by hand or lightly in a spice/coffee blender 
  • Chia seeds
  • Flax seeds, freshly ground
  • Organic Raisins
  • Blackstrap molasses that is unsulphured (and organic if you can find it), add to your taste
Boil your water, add your ground oats and raisins, cook for a couple minutes. Take off heat and add your seeds and molasses, stir until well blended and serve! 

*You want to add a little more liquid along the way because the flax will absorb a lot after the fact, so compensate as you stir until you have the consistency you want, it should be pretty easy to stir when you first get finished adding everything, and as it cools will firm up. 

*I often use buckwheat in place of oatmeal and it works the same for the recipe. 

*The molasses can be substituted with raw honey, too.

So much nutrition packed into such a simple morning meal!
