Don't be scared! This oatmeal is just like any other oatmeal--it's warm, it's sweet, it's healthy!
It's just, you know... green.
Very different from my Chocolate Fudge Brownie Oatmeal. One can never get sick of chocolate but it's always good to change things up a bit, so I decided to use matcha instead of cocoa and vanilla protein powder instead of chocolate protein powder. The result? Delicious, bright and sweet almond matcha oatmeal!
Sweet Matcha Almond Oatmeal: [low fat, high fiber/protein, GF, vegan]
1/2 cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (GF if you like)
1 tbs Sweet Matcha
2 tbs Granulated Erythritol (or dry sweetener of choice)
1/2 cup Water
2-3 tbs Water
15-19 drops Almond Extract (to taste, I like 19)
10-13 drops Stevia Extract (I used 13, as I have a maaajor sweet tooth)1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1. Add the Step 1 ingredients into a microwave safe bowl and stir (it should look like Shrek's choice breakfast!). Microwave for 2 minutes (I stopped it around 1.2 minutes to stir and prevent boiling over).
2. In a cup, whisk together the Step 2 ingredients. Pour over cooked oatmeal. Sprinkle some almonds over top and enjoy!
Don't be scared and just enjoy. Close your eyes if you have to ;)
Perfect for St. Patty's Day or any day for a kid, just tell them Shrek made it for them!
