Breakfast has always been the hardest meal of the day for me to eat. Luckily, I’ve been working dishes like a super easy power oatmeal recipe into my menu planning. If you’re like me and you just aren’t that hungry in the morning, power oatmeal may be just what you need to get going. My mostly vegan hubs (he has the occasional cheeseburger, bwah) introduced me to it. Like most of the meals he makes for me, I instantly fell in love with power oatmeal. I love it because, one, it’s delicious, but also because you can throw it together so quickly.
I tend to not want anything but coffee before noon, but that’s obviously not good for me. So, I need breakfast ideas that won’t require a ton of prep time. If I’m not hungry, I’m not apt to spend a ton of time in the kitchen preparing something. Eating nothing is simply not an option, especially since I’m switching my schedule around and working out in the morning versus the evening. Remember that workout app we shared the other day? It makes finding a fitness class you’re excited about so easy, you’ll want to work out in the morning too! On that note, let’s talk about how we’re going to fuel you up!
Easy Power Oatmeal Recipe
1/2 cup steel cut oats or 1 cup of prepared instant oatmeal
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup berries
2 tsp flaxseeds
2 tbs tahini
splash of almond milk
1. Cook the oatmeal per the container’s instructions.
2. Add cinnamon while cooking the oatmeal (or right after if making instant).
3. Chop up the banana.
4. Transfer oatmeal to bowl.
5. Add the tahini, flax, chopped banana and berries.
6. Add the almond milk according to your desired consistency.
Now typically power oatmeal would include a protein packed grain like quinoa, but this recipe is plenty filling for me. Feel free to add it if you feel like your oatmeal needs the extra boost!

Now that you’re ready to whip up our easy power oatmeal recipe, how about some more healthy breakfast ideas? I’m trying to make this the year of planning. The more prep I put in for my week, the more seamlessly it will go I hope. So, I’m trying to collect recipes the week before. And these tasty breakfasts are definitely going in my menu plan!
