OATMEAL BREAKFAST SLICE
Recipe by Charissa & Co.
Kids home? Breakfast getting you down? Get the kids involved into helping out when it comes to food preparation especially on Sunday afternoons. This is a great way for them to understand more about whole foods and possibly get them more excited in having their breakfast in the morning as they helped make it.
With this simple oatmeal slice, you can make it in the late afternoon and keep it in the fridge overnight for the next morning. Plus doing this brings benefits:
Why? As we know not all carbs are created equal. From sugars to starches to fiber, different carbs have different effects on our health and digestion.
So, as oats is a starch when cooked and left to cool the structure of the molecules change. Forming a type of starch - Resistant starch, this is a carb that is also considered a type of fiber and we don’t physically digest this. Therefore our gut bacteria feast on this resistant starch.
Resistant starch provides health benefits.
As it is not digested by the cells of our small intestine, it is available for the bacteria in the large intestine to use.
Resistant starch is a prebiotic, therefore it provides “food” for the good bacteria in your intestines.
1 Cup Oats Medium size organic
1/3 Cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
1 Tsp vanilla extract
1 Large whole organic egg 🥚 or 2 flaxseed eggs
1/3 Cup nut milk
2 Servings Nuzest Wild Strawberry Kids good Stuff
1/3 Cup Almond meal
Mix all the above ingredients together until a firm dough like consistency is achieved. If it’s too dry and not mixing, add a touch of nut milk. It can’t be too wet either. If so add more oats.
Press it down firmly into your microwave tray. Microwave for 3 min. Using a large plate turn it onto the plate. If the cooked mixture does not pop out it means it’s not ready. Cook for another minute. It will pop out of the square shaped tray when turning upside down if it’s ready.
Finally cut into 4 x squares or triangles (allow to cool) keep in the fridge overnight and the next morning you can either warm it up or toast the squares. Or even have it cold. Spread with your nut butter (thumb size fat) or coconut yoghurt and fresh berries with monk fruit syrup
