Best of Best Oat Bran: A Tale of Addiction

Posted Mar 03 2011 4:24am
How it all began….

A little cinnamon to complete the party

I remember this bowl….

I remember each bowl like it was yesterday…

I even took baggies with ‘my formula’ to Denmark:

Pecan butter remains my favorite topping ^

But coconut butter works, too ^

Strike a pose

Hello, gorgeous!

Yes, even oat bran sometimes has a bad hair day!

My { formula } for Best Oat Bran:
* 1/3 cup oat bran (40 g)
* 1/3 cup sweetened soymilk (80 ml)
* 2/3 cup water (160 ml)
* 2 T chia seeds
* 1 T vanilla protein powder (optional)
* 1,5-2 T agave
* 1 t vanilla extract
* dash of salt
* top with: half a sliced banana, nut butter

Place all ingredients, except agave, in a small saucepan and turn up the heat to high. Keep stirring until it starts to bubble, then turn the heat down. Keep cooking and stirring until desired consistency (~5 minutes max). Turn off the heat, add agave and stir through. Add toppings and dive in!

This bowl of bran is not only delicious & easy, it’s also super filling & nutrious. It’s chock full of fiber, protein, and healthy fats and contains half a serving of fruit & your FULL recommended daily intake for omega-3. Sweet! It also has a decent amount of iron & calcium (esp when topped with almond butter) and is definitely not too high in calories. Adding a teaspoon of cinnamon will warm you up & up the fiber, calcium & iron content.

From now on, you’ll have a good excuse to wake up in the morning :).

(A note for Dutch citizens: oat bran = haverzemelen!)
