Simple Cinnamon Oats

October 1, 2018

Cinnamon Oats

One of the easiest and most nourishing breakfasts you can get. Simple Cinnamon Oats makes an ideal base recipe and there are so many ways to mix it up.  I typically use the fruit and toppings that I have available, it could be banana, it could be berries, it might be nuts, seeds or both. Hemp seeds make a great topping, a sprinkle of granola or the addition of your favourite protein powder. Endless options.

Oats are a great breakfast option; filling, rich in energising B vitamins and fibre!

This is also a perfect breakfast to prep ahead of the week:

  1. Decide how many days you want oats that week.
  2. Prepare batches in jars by adding your oats and cinnamon.
  3. The night before top with milk, fruit and toppings.

Simple Cinnamon Oats – Key Nutrients

Oats

  • Low GI source of carbohydrates helping to regulate blood sugar levels – thus reducing cravings and energy crashes.
  • A good source of resistant starch which is beneficial for gut health by providing a fuel source to gut bacteria.

Cinnamon

  • Like oats, cinnamon helps to regulate blood sugar levels
  • Don’t like cinnamon? Start small and work up.. try ¼ tsp and slowly increase with a goal of 1 tsp.
