People who know me know that I have a severe obsession with cinnamon, especially the sweet saigon cinnamon. I add it to absolutely everything. Partially because I find it adds so much sweetness to an otherwise sugar-free meal, and partially because it has so many amazing health benefits. It’s anti-inflammatory, helps to balance blood sugar, and contains a surprising amount of calcium just to name a few.
This is one of my quick go-to breakfasts when I’m in the mood for something sweet. I love using the frozen blueberries and watching the purple color melt all through the oats!
1/2 cup quick oats
1 cup water
1 tablespoon chia seeds
2 tablespoons saigon cinnamon
handful of frozen blueberries
Cook the oats (for speed I just use the microwave)
Stir in the chia seeds while still piping hot
Stir in the cinnamon
Mix in the blueberries & enjoy
