High protein, delicious vegan oatmeal in under 2 minutes? Is that possible? Yes it is and it’s incredibly easy! I eat a lot of oatmeal and I need a variety of different kinds to make sure I never get bored of my favorite breakfast food. There are lots of fancy and intricate recipes but sometimes I just don’t have the time/patience in the morning for prepping/mixing 10 different ingredients. So I came up with this simple and scrumptious solution. Oatmeal and Kashi Go Lean Crunch Honey Almond Flax (the whole foods version of this cereal works just as well). Just make sure that you get the newer non-GMO verified box, some of the older boxes still on the shelves have a GMO soy base.
1 Cup of whole rolled oats
2/3 Cup of Kashi Go Lean Crunch
Potassium: 640mg (17% DV)
Iron: 19% DV
Step 1: Boil water (or close to boil)
Step 2: Mix the ingredients together in a big bowl
Step 3: Pour hot water over the oatmeal mix enough to cover all of the oats and a little extra. It should be a little “soupy” at first but it will absorb all the excess water within a minute or so.
Step 4: Enjoy!
I always thought that Kashi Go Lean cereal was way too hard but the hot water softens it up just enough to still have a firm texture without hurting your teeth. The cereal also has a decent amount of sugar with a honey flavor so the mix comes out tasty but not too sweet since the oatmeal does a great job at balancing it out! I personally double the recipe above due to my considerable morning appetite but there is no wrong way to eat this scrumptious breakfast.
