Morning! We are 3 days into Dan’s new role and him being home more. I can’t wait to write more about it, but it has really freed up time for me to work more at home. I can get in anywhere from 1-3 hours in the morning and then if I need to another hour in the late afternoon. It’s been really nice and I already feel more balanced as a family.
I’ve been making breakfast in the morning because I have more time now. I made a quick oatmeal yesterday and it was so great I wanted to share the recipe. Olivia loves helping in the kitchen, so she enjoyed putting in each ingredient and mixing. Definitely a very family friendly breakfast and packed with nutrients too!
- 2 cups oats
- 1/3 cup almond butter
- 2-3 tbsp Maple Syrup
- 1/3 cup ground flax
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 cup water
Mix all ingredients together and cook on low for 6-8 minutes. Stirr frequently so it doesn’t burn. Add favorite toppings like fruit, granola, or additional nuts/nut butter.
This will be perfect for fall. I’m not quite ready for daily oatmeal, but soon!
What’s your favorite breakfast of late? Always looking for new options!
