“No More Blues” Blueberry Oats

Vegan Blueberry Surprise Oats! Yum! Free of salt, oil and sugar!

This is my one of my favorite morning breakfast meals! Bursting with antioxidants, my Blueberry Oat Surprise is a unique and tropical way to start your day! Blueberries were one of the first fruits to be named a superfood. This oatmeal is a huge dose of antioxidants and anthocyanins. Β I’m positive you’ve heard of antioxidants, those incredible microscopic beings that keep us young and protected from free radicals, but are you familiar with anthocyanins? Anthocyanins are the pigments that provide the deep blue color to blueberries. They have shown to help prevent heart disease and memory loss. Wow, I’ll take two servings please!! (I’m drinking a Matcha Green Tea (almond milk) Latte in this photo in case you were wondering!)

Ingredients (Serves 2)

1, 10 ounce bag Frozen Wild Blueberries
1/2 Cup Raw, Gluten Free, Old Fashioned Oats
1/3 Cup Coconut WaterΒ (my favorite brands are Taste Nirvana or Harmless Harvest)
1-2 Tablespoons Ground Flaxseed
2 Tablespoons Dried Shredded Coconut, unsweetened
2 Bananas, sliced

Directions

Option 1: Mix all ingredients together. Store in an airtight container overnight in the refrigerator, and eat the next morning raw & chilled!

Option 2: Mix all ingredients together in a stovetop pan. Heat on medium-high for about 5 minutes or until the blueberries have defrosted and slightly warm.
