This Breakfast Bowl is a healthy alternative to your usual breakfast... a 
flavourful dish you're sure to love! It's filled with super foods that will 
keep you feeling satisfied and energized and can be topped with 
your personal favorites!

Sunday mornings are for cuddles is the Facebook post I put up 
this morning and it was true.  We all snuggled in bed this morning 
until about 9am and then of course we paid for it by needing to rush
 around later.  Gord was heading to his parents place to put the 
cover on our trailer for winter so I had to make the boys breakfast
 (they were pretty hungry by then).  I made them both scrambled 
eggs, and easy favourite for them.  But for myself I don't care for 
eggs too much so I decided to throw together an oatmeal breakfast
 bowl.  I gathered ingredients that I had in the kitchen and threw
 together a combination of Raspberries, banana, almonds and 
peanut butter!  I wasn't sure how it would all turn out but seriously
 it was so good!  

Healthy Oatmeal Chia Breakfast Bowl


1/4 cup Whole Oats
1 1/2 Tsp chia seeds
3/4 Cup Water
½ tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp honey
½ cup rinsed raspberries
1/2 banana, sliced
3 tbsp slivered almonds
2 tbsp melted homemade peanut butter 
(or other nut butter)
1 tbsp maple syrup

*Other optional toppings // sliced strawberries, blueberries,
 blackberries, kiwi, peaches, coconut shavings, goji berries,
 pomegranate seeds, pumpkin seeds, nut butters, cacao nibs,
 or homemade granola

1.    Add Oats, chia seeds and water into a small sauce pan.
  Cook on medium high until bubbling. 
2.    Add in honey and vanilla, stir and cook until oats are
 tender and mixture starts to thicken. 
3.    Rinse and slice fresh fruit.
4.    Combine peanut butter and maple in a saucepan or 
microwave-safe dish. Heat until warm and thin enough to
 drizzle.  Add more maple syrup if consistency is too thick. 
5.    Top with fruit, slivered almonds and a drizzle of 
the peanut butter/maple syrup mixture.
6.    Serve and enjoy immediately.

This breakfast bowl could be made as overnight 
oats if desired.
