Nutrient-Rich Oatmeal CupsMay 03, 2023
Oatmeal is not my top choice when it comes to nutrient-rich breakfasts, but it can be an easy, warm breakfast to have on hand. To increase the nutrients, add some protein, and make this a more satisfying and blood sugar friendly meal I stirred in some eggs. Eggs also provide a great source of protein along with other micronutrients like iodine, B-vitamins, zinc, choline, and DHA to promote healing and enrich breast milk to support the baby's proper growth and development. I added in some warming spices - cinnamon and ginger - which are traditionally included in postpartum nutrition to improve circulation, support energy and digestion, and increase milk supply.
- 6 cups water
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 3 cups organic rolled oats (spouted is ideal)
- 4 eggs
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp ginger powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Bring the water and salt to a boil. Stir in the oats and reduce the heat to low-medium. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Once the oatmeal is cooked, whisk the eggs in a small bowl. Slowly incorporate the warm oatmeal into the bowl of eggs while stirring constantly to avoid curdling your eggs. Do this with about 1 cup of oatmeal, then combine the egg mixture into the pot of oatmeal and cook over the stove for 3-4 minutes while stirring.
- Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and any spices you're adding.
- Transfer to Souper Cube mold and let it cool before transferring to the freezer.
- Once they are completely frozen, transfer them to a plastic bag or other storage container.
- To enjoy, just reheat the oatmeal and add any toppings you like, like greek yogurt, milk, berries or raw honey.
