I have always loved oats as a morning meal option.

You can make them taste however you like, they are simple to make, with the right mix-ins they can be pretty filling, not to mention the loads of nutrition benefits packed in oats!

Nutrition Benefits of Oats: Good source of B vitamins (which may help with mood and are linked with metabolism), they are whole grains, may benefit heart health, are filled with fiber-specifically beta-glucans which are linked with reduced cholesterol, and they contain a ton of other vitamins and minerals.

I also love the versatility of oats in that I can enjoy them hot or cold depending on my mood.

While living in Colorado, I found a Super Oats blend that had lots of fun mix ins like quinoa flakes, flax meal, chia seeds, and amaranth. Unfortunately, I don’t think the company makes this product anymore, so I decided to make my own DIY Power Oatmeal Mix!

DIY Power Oatmeal Mix Tips

My mix includes:

  • Quick oats-for quicker cook time
  • Quinoa flakes-plant protein and gives a creamy texture
  • Chia seeds-great source of omega 3 fatty acids, calcium, and iron
  • Flax meal-good source of omega 3 fatty acids and fiber
  • Sliced almonds-for texture, fiber, healthy fats and vitamin E
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt

The method is simple, just combine all ingredients in a large bowl and either portion out into containers or zipper top bags in 1/3 cup servings or store in a large resealable container and portion it out as you go.

Description

A simple recipe for DIY Power Oatmeal Mix, the perfect mix to have on hand for a nutritious hot oatmeal breakfast or overnight oats. This mix tastes great both ways!


Scale

Ingredients

2 cups quick oats (for quicker cooking)

½ cup quinoa flakes

2 tablespoons chia seeds (great source of omega 3 fatty acids, calcium, and iron

2 tablespoons flax meal

2 tablespoons sliced almonds

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon salt


Instructions

To make the packets:

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir to combine. 

Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place or divide into 9 packets/zipper top bags with ⅓ cup in each. 

To make a single serving hot:

1/3 cup of mix (1 packet)

2/3 cup water

½ mashed banana, optional

Toppings: nut or seed butter, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds or walnuts, fresh or frozen fruit, anything that sounds delicious

For a single serving use 1 part oats with 2 parts water (example, 1/3 cup of mix and 2/3 cup of water). 

To make, bring the water to a boil over high heat. Stir in the oats, then reduce the heat to low and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally allowing the oats to thicken.  This will take about 5 minutes.

To make a single serving cold (overnight oats): 

½ mashed banana

⅓ cup of mix (1 packet)

⅔ cup of milk of your choice, such as unsweetened almond milk, Ripple pea milk, Kefir, or oat milk

1 teaspoon maple syrup, or sweetener of choice

Smash the banana in a container you can seal. 

Mix in the oat mixture, milk of choice, and maple syrup. Stir to combine, cover and store in the fridge for at least one hour or overnight. Remove the lid and top with desired toppings.
