Maca Cinnamon Oatmeal Recipe
This oatmeal isn't just high flavor, it's also high function! Packed with energizing maca, blood sugar-balancing cinnamon, and mineral-rich almond butter, this breakfast can help keep you going strong for hours.
1 large Medjool date, pitted and finely chopped
1 Tbsp. coconut sugar + extra for serving
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup water
1 tsp. Navitas Organics Maca Powder
Pinch of sea salt
¾ cup rolled oats
2 tsp. almond butter, for serving
½ cup unsweetened almond milk, for serving
In a small bowl, mix together the chopped date, coconut sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
Combine the water, maca powder and salt in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil, covered. Stir in the oats, cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, without stirring, for 5 minutes or until oats are tender. Remove from heat and swirl in the cinnamon-sugar-date mixture.
Transfer the oatmeal to a bowl, drizzle with almond butter and sprinkle with additional coconut sugar to taste.
Pour as much almond milk as desired on top and enjoy warm.
