Raspberry Chocolate Fig Oatmeal
I have to admit it, sometimes my best creations come from me being ravenously hungry. The reason? I’m ok to throw almost everything I have in the kitchen into a bowl to eat. And mostly, the crazy combinations taste fantastic. I have to say, I was really impressed with this one. The flavor combinations were perfect!
- 1/4 cup plain oats
- 2 tbsp quinoa flakes
- Handful frozen raspberries + more for topping
- Coconut milk (or preferred milk)
- 1 tbsp cacao powder
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- Raw agave & cinnamon
- 3-4 Figs (I had green, but black would also be delicious)
- Unsweetened coconut flakes
- Favorite granola (I used Udi’s Vanilla)
Combine oats, quinoa flakes & frozen raspberries and cook with water.
Add: Cacao powder, chia seeds, cinnamon & agave and stir until incorporated.
Add: coconut milk until desired consistency is reached (I like thick and creamy oats).
Top with: Raspberries, figs, a sprinkle of coconut flakes and granola.
Calories: 523 (This sounds high, but this was pre leg-day workout nutrition for me, which means A LOT of carbs and some healthy fats are greatly needed. Plus, I’m a nutrient counter, not a calorie counter)
This oatmeal contains 16g of FIBER!!! Also, it is high in Vitamin C, Calcium & Iron and contains powerful antioxidants, omega-3’s and was an AMAZING fuel for my intense leg day workout!
