  • 2 tbsp chopped almonds
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp white chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp goji berries
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup instant oats
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 mandarins peeled and segmented
  1. Place the almonds, pumpkin seeds and pepitas in a frying pan over medium heat and toast for about 3 minutes. Make sure to shake the pan regularly until the mixture is lightly toasted. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Add the white chia seeds and goji berries.

  2. In a small saucepan warm the honey, almond butter, coconut oil and 1/4 cup of water over low heat and stir until smooth and everything is combined. Move to a small bowl to cool

  3. Give the saucepan a quick rinse and place the instant oats into the saucepan. Add the milk and water and heat over medium heat for about 2-5 minutes (this will depend on the oats), or until the oat mixture thickens.

  4. Divide the oats between bowls. Top with mandarin slices, the nut mixture and a drizzle of the almond butter mix. Serve.

Recipe Notes

If the oat mixture is too thick add more milk until it reaches your desired consistency.
