One of my favourite go-to ingredients for breakfast. I make this in batches and can use it when I need it. I love being able to explore different flavours and combinations to keep my mornings interesting.
For my Metabolic Balance readers, after strict phase honey or maple syrup can be omitted. You can also choose to omit the rolled oats and just stick to rolled rye. It can be sweetened at the time of eating by adding the fruit on your plan. Ingredients:
2 cups of rolled oats
1/3 cup of rolled rye
1/2 cup of buckwheat groats
1/4 cup of pumpkin seeds
1/4 sunflower seeds
1/8 cup of sesame seeds
1/8 cup of desiccated unsweetened coconut
Sea salt to taste
1/4 cup of raw honey or maple syrup
1/4 cup of ghee or coconut oil
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla essence
Your choice of fruits (Golgi berries, blueberries, raisins, diced dry fruits, black currants, etc.)
Dark chocolate chips (optional)
Heat your oven to 300 F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients.
Add the honey and ghee and mix all until well combined. Spread the oats mixture evenly on the tray and bake for 20 minutes.
Give it a stir and bake it further for 25 minutes.
Top with your choice of fruits and chocolate chips.
