1 cup Water (divided)
1/2 cup Oats (quick or rolled)
1/4 cup Blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/4 cup Strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 Clementines (peeled, sliced)
2 tbsp Chia Seeds
- Bring 2/3 of the water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add the oats. Reduce to a steady simmer and cook, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes or until oats are tender and most of the water is absorbed. Set aside.
- Wipe the saucepan clean and add the blueberries, strawberries, clementine, chia seeds and remaining water. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes or until tender and thick.
- Transfer the oatmeal to a bowl or container if on-the-go, and top with the berry clementine sauce. Garnish with a slice of clementine (optional). Enjoy!
