Breakfast Reinvented: Nut butter and Jam Oatmeal

Love Life and Lollipops- Nut Butter and Jam Oatmeal

I do my very best to avoid all processed, refined grains and flours (we eat only sprouted grain bread in the house).  Breakfast is generally the toughest meal to avoid eating breads or baked goods when eating a vegan diet with kids around.  It's all too easy to throw together a sandwich for breakfast and eat it on the move.

Recently I've been trying to make more oatmeal for us.  Avital loves it!  It's straight up whole grains.  An almost perfect breakfast.  I drink a green juice first thing in the morning while I'm preparing it for a good dose of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, energy, get the point.  I cook the oats in fresh nut mylk and a pinch of sea salt.  Then after it's cooked I add cashew butter (we're a little obsessed with the Better Than Roasted raw cashew butter) and a small spoonful of sugar free jam (I'm a raspberry girl).

Nut butter and jam is the perfect way to finish off your morning cereal giving you a bit of added protein and sweetness to start your day!  It's easy, quick, and totally delicious.
