Love Oatmeal Bowls? Then, you’ve got to follow @vegancaroline on IG
There can’t be a better oatmeal bowl creator than our favorite college track athlete Caroline @vegancaroline. Be sure to check out her Instagram for inspiration.
In this version, she combines ZEGO’s Double Protein Oats with our Apple Cinnamon Mix-Ins and . . . wait for it . . . sweet potatoes, chickpeas, and a drizzle of nut/seed butter.
You’ll be delighted with the taste and texture of this unexpected combo. We love it for brunch on those days where you want one breakfast/lunch combo meal that will support your nutrition needs until the evening.
If apples irritate your stomach in the morning, it’s likely because they are high in lectins. Lectins are essential to your health but too many can irritate your stomach. Just substitute our Cranberry Mix-Ins instead!
How this Oatmeal Bowl is Better
This bowl is the bomb for protein and fiber! Depending on what proportions you use, one serving has 15g of protein and 10g of fiber. And we know fiber is critical to building a healthy immune system.
And, the sweet potatoes not only add antioxidants, they support the health of your skin and teeth too.
Special Diet Features
As always, swap seeds and nuts if you are allergic. If you can’t have beans, this oatmeal bowl is delicious without them too.
Oatmeal Bowl: The Non-Recipe
- Cook your oats stovetop 1:2 oats to water ratio + a pinch of salt. Simmer 10 minutes.
- In the last 2 minutes, toss your other ingredients in and cover. This will let the oats finish cooking while warming up your other additions.
- We recommend making more than one serving at a time and saving the leftovers to enjoy another day. The leftovers also make delicious waffles! Just add an egg or egg substitute and pop in a waffle maker (see our recipes for waffles).
