Pumped-Up Banana Pecan:

  • 1/4 cup of rolled oats

  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 tbsp of chopped pecans

Mix 1/4 cup quick cooking oats, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (I like Genuine Health) and tsp of cinnamon. Heat over medium, stirring constantly. Move to bowl and top with sliced banana, and a Tbsp of chopped pecans and a splash of almond milk.

Live Nutty-Seed Cranberry Crunch:

  • 1/2 cup of rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup of mixed nuts
  • 2 tbsp of mixed seeds (hemp, chia, ground flax)
  • 1 tbsp of dried cranberries

Mix 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1/4 cups mixed nuts, seeds & dried cranberries into a bowl, cover with enough water to just cover all ingredients. Place a paper towel over top and sit on the counter overnight. In the morning stir in some milk and either maple syrup or agave nectar and you have a nutrient-dense raw cereal waiting to fill you up and fuel you up.

Brain-boosting Almond Butter:

  • 2 cups of rolled oats
  • 2 tsp of cinnamon
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 cups of almond milk (or cashew, coconut, hemp, rice milk)
  • 4 tbsp of nut butter
  • 2 tbsp of maple syrup or raw honey

Preheat the oven to 375′. Coat an 8×8 inch baking dish with coconut oil. In a large bowl combine 2 cups old-fashioned olds and 2 tsp cinnamon. In a medium bowl, beat 2 eggs and 2 cups of almond milk, 1 cup of water & 4 tbsp almond butter or natural peanut butter. Add the oats and mix. Pour into dish and bake for 20 minutes. Drizzle with 2 tbsp maple syrup. Soooooooo yummy!
