The secret ingredient your oatmeal has been missing
Getting out of bed when it's negative 20 degrees outside is hard. But having a delicious, warm breakfast to look forward to definitely helps. And while we love our go-to oatmeal for an a.m. meal that keeps us full and energized, there's one thing that could make our bowl even better: sweet potato.
The orange veggies are full of good-for-you vitamins (like Vitamin C which will boost your immune system) and dietary fiber (which helps your digestive system), not to mention totally tasty, especially when mixed into a piping hot bowl of oats. To try it for yourself tomorrow morning, follow the recipe below.
- 1/2 cup oats
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1/3 cup mashed sweet potato
- 1-2 tsp brown sugar
- Pinch of salt
- Pumpkin pie spice
- Maple syrup
- Chopped almonds
1. Combine the oats, milk, salt and mashed sweet potato in a bowl and microwave for about 90 seconds.
2. Sprinkle pumpkin pie spice and brown sugar to taste and stir. Add a drizzle of maple syrup and top with chopped almonds.
