Fuji Nana’s Get-Up-And-Go Oatmeal

in Breakfast, Vegan

Fuji Nana's Get-Up-And-Go Oatmeal

When I think about oatmeal I always think about Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street, because Bert loves oatmeal.  I always thought Bert was a bit boring, but I do agree with him on oatmeal.  I love oatmeal.  Actually, I love oats in general.  So when my mom introduced me to her “Get-Up-And-Go” Oatmeal this past summer, I was an instant addict.  She whips up a batch of a special blend of mix-ins that she then has on hand for whenever she wants to eat oatmeal.  She adds this blend to her oatmeal, along with ground flaxseed, some coconut sugar, fresh berries, and milk.

Get-Up-And-Go Oatmeal Blend

Her blend is chopped almonds, cacao nibs, dried currants, and hemp hearts.  I use the same ingredients, but also add in unsweetened coconut chips…because I’m also a coconut addict.

The only work involved in putting this blend together is in measuring out the ingredients and chopping up the almonds.

To make the oatmeal, you first cook your oatmeal (I find that I cook smaller portions when making it this way because it is super filling), then top it with the oatmeal blend, ground flaxseed, your sweetener of choice (I like date sugar!), fresh berries, and your milk of choice (I like cashew milk!).

At this point I usually mix everything up and eat.  It’s not as pretty at this point, but it is definitely delicious and full of things that will keep you going.

This oatmeal is super filling and full of flavor and nutrients.  A perfect way to start the day!  The special blend can be made in large batches and kept in the fridge so that it is ready for whenever you need it!

I make my own organic pumpkin-seed milk, and it is amazing when you cook hot cereals with the homemade seed milk. I cook organic steel-cut oats in the seed milk along with some organic cultured butter and organic maple syrup sugar. Adding your toppings would make it amazing!
