My Colourful Morning Scott’s Energy Oats

20161005_121212

It’s starting to get chilly in the mornings now here in Bonnie Scotland, the Autumn has certainly arrived. I do love the Autumn though, apple pies, warm pumpkin soup, warming hearty stews and lovely hot breakfasts! Feeling cold and tired, I decided to colour up my porridge this morning and add some energy boosting foods, it certainly perked me up and put a smile on my face, great way to start the working day.    Total calories:- 318

 

1 portion Scotts porridge oats (I used the so easy version for quickness)

1 banana – sliced

8g almonds – grinded to powder

7g pistachios – grinded to powder

5g chia seeds

pink food colouring

 

  1. Cook porridge oats as per normal but adding in the pink colouring
  2. Place the other ingredients in any way you choose. Make a different design and colour every day! Have fun with your food!

20160419_103745                20160419_103731

Looking again for something different, thought I’d combine my breakfast together, with my love of Green Tea and Porridge in the morning this was a bit of a chance but it kinda worked!

 

200ml Green Tea

50ml Milk

15g Chia Seeds

7g Toasted Coconut Flakes

7 g Walnuts – chopped

 

  1. Make your Green Tea as usual, add in the milk and Chia Seeds and mix, allow to blend together overnight in the fridge.
  2. In the morning, put your porridge oats in a bowl, pour over the green tea and chia mixture.
  3. Cook in the microwave at 800 watt for approx 3 mins.
  4. Sprinkle Toasted Coconut and Walnuts on
  5. Serve….Yummy and very nutritious!                                                                                                               20160419_104304
