1/2 cup instant oatmeal

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 tablespoon flaxseeds, finely ground

1/4 cup raisins

1/4 cup walnut pieces

1 tablespoon agave nectar

1/4 cup milk


  1. Combine the oatmeal and 1 cup water. Microwave on full power for 2 minutes or until the oats are cooked. Add the chia seeds, ground flaxseeds, raisins, walnuts and agave nectar. Let sit 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the milk.

Cook’s Note

Most people like their oatmeal with a pinch of salt. If you do, add it before microwaving. I don't, only because, while I'm healthy and don't have any sodium-related problems, I know that I get plenty of salt in my diet at work, so do without it at breakfast with that in mind.
