Oatmeal got an upgrade. Traditional oats mixed with nutritious cauliflower and protein packed collagen peptides makes for an oatmeal that won’t spike your blood sugar and will actually keep you full.
This is my new favorite breakfast. I have literally made it four times in the last week. It is warm and cozy (perfect for this cold weather) and delicious and CHOCOLATE and it keeps me full for so long! What more could you ask for from your breakfast?
I love adding cauliflower into my oats because first of all, it adds a lot of great nutrients, second of all, it keeps the carbs down (which is good for your first meal of the day), adds some good fiber, AND allows me to eat more without overdoing it which is always a plus! And adding collagen gives us some extra protein we wouldn’t otherwise get while giving us a healthy solution to that chocolatey taste.
If you like this breakfast be sure to try my bulletproof cacao protein breakfast cookies and my triple chocolate avocado zucchini bread for other great chocolatey options!
Let’s Make Some Chocolate Collagen Cauliflower Oatmeal!
So this recipe is really quite simple – especially if you buy pre-riced cauliflower or rice it ahead of time. To steam my cauliflower all I do is measure it out (BEFORE steaming) and then put it in a microwave safe bowl and cook it for about 2 minutes. It will make it nice and soft – you don’t even need to add water!
Then combine that with the oats, milk, and chia seeds in your sauce pan over medium heat. Stirring continually until most of the liquid is absorbed. You definitely want to include the chia seeds, it helps it thicken up a lot better and a lot quicker (I tried nixing them one time and got impatient and just put them in :)) plus they are a great source of healthy fats so why would you want to!
Once it is almost done, add your ancient nutrition chocolate collagen. This is the only collagen I have tried so I can’t speak to any others, although I am sure others would work. And next on my list is trying this with their vanilla! Just stir until everything is combined and you are good to go!
I like serving it with a huge dollop of peanut butter – but how you serve is up to you!
One last thing – be sure to use certified gluten free oats and a non dairy milk (any will work) to keep this gf and vegan!
In addition to the listed ingredients, you will need:
- a microwavable bowl
- a sauce pan
- something to stir with
I hope this makes you mornings that much better!Print
