Chia Pomegranate Oatmeal
This is one of my favourite breakfast recipes. It's quick and simple, and is a great healthy alternative to sugar-laden toast, jam or cereal. Cinnamon is one of the healthiest and most delicious spices on the planet. It can lower blood sugar levels, reduce heart disease risk and has anti-inflammatory properties.
- 1⅓ cups water
- ⅔ cup rolled oats
- 1 pinch sea salt
- ½ cup liquid egg whites
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons chia seeds
- ½ cup pomegranate seeds
1. Pour the water in a small sauce pan, and bring to the boil. Add the rolled oats and a pinch of salt. Bring back to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. The oats should thicken as they cook.
2. When the oats reach the consistency you like, stir in the liquid egg whites.
3. When nice and thick, serve into a bowl, then add the chia and pomegranate seeds and sprinkle with cinnamon.
