Coconut Oatmeal with Raspberries and PB Sauce

This Coconut Oatmeal is a great pre- or post-workout breakfast to get your energy flowing.


Did you know that oatmeal is a whole grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants? Oats have many health benefits, including reducing cholesterol and blood pressure, can improve blood sugar control, may relieve constipation, and make you feel fuller longer.




Serves: 2

Prep: 5 min.

Cook Time: 5 min.


Fit4You Portions: 1/2 protein, 1 fat, 2 carb


What you need:

Ingredients:

1 cup oats

1 cup water

⅔ cup canned light coconut milk

½ tsp. sugar or any sweetener

pinch of salt

½ cup raspberries

For the PB Sauce:

2 tbsp. peanut butter

4 tbsp. warm water

pinch of salt


What you need to do:

Add the oats, coconut milk, water, sugar, and salt to a small pot. Bring everything to a boil and then simmer over low heat without mixing for 5-7 minutes, or until the oatmeal thickens.

In the meantime, mix peanut butter with water and salt, then crush the raspberries in a different bowl.

Place the oatmeal in a bowl, top with a tablespoon of the peanut butter sauce and crushed raspberries. This can be served hot or cold.



NOTES FROM COACH MEL:

If your oatmeal gets too thick after cooking, just add a 1/4 cup of skim milk or milk alternative (unsweetened) to your serving in your bowl before adding PB sauce and raspberries.


Looking for more protein? Add a 1/2 or full scoop of your favorite protein powder to the oatmeal after its cooked. You will most likely need to add 1/4 cup of water so it's not so thick. Adding a 1/2 a scoop will give you and additional 1/2 serving of protein and a full scoop is a full serving of protein.


Don't like coconut, just substitute regular lowfat milk for the coconut milk.
