Oatmeal is a great breakfast but we wanted something more interesting to make part of our daily breakfast routine.

There are numerous benefits of eating oats for breakfast everyday.

This recipe is filled with protein, fiber, carbohydrates for energy, good fats.

If you want to make this for kids I wouldn’t add the protein powder. Most companies protein powders are not formulated for the delicate stomachs of children.

Protein is an important component of every cell in the body. It’s an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.

The human body does not store protein, and therefore has no reservoir to draw on when it needs a new supply.

Protein is a “macro-nutrient,” meaning that the body needs relatively large amounts of it to keep it renewing its cells.

Hemp seeds are exceptionally nutritious and rich in healthy fats, protein and various minerals.

Now on to the recipe.

My husband has been perfecting this recipe for the last month and we absolutely love it! He makes it once a week. It’s a quick satisfying meal to start the day off right.
