"Oatmeal With Strawberries!"

... that's almost always the reply when I ask the kids what they'd like for breakfast.

This recipe makes enough for one mommy and two little ones. Adjust amounts according to family members/appetites.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 1/4 c quick oats
  • 2 1/4 c vanilla soy or almond milk
  • 2 Tbsp milled flax seeds
  • Diced strawberries
  • Cane sugar to sweeten to taste
  1. Combine oats milk, and flax in a medium saucepan and put on low-medium heat. At this point I let it do its thing while I do the various stuff that must be done in the morning, walking by every few minutes to give it a stir.
  2. When it's thickened, remove from heat.
  3. Add to bowls and stir in sugar to taste. (I wait to add the sugar until it's in the bowls because *shhhhhh* I put more in mine than in the kids'. Don't tell.) Top with diced strawberries.
I'm a big fan of flax in oatmeal. It goes practically undetected with the bulkiness of the oats, and it has so many nutritional benefits. It can't be beat in terms of omega-3's, which are so important for developing brains. For the old mom crowd, it's a good source of fiber. (But that's not all! Read here for more about the wonders of flax.)

Oatmeal with Strawberries (!!!!!). It's our favorite way to start the day.
