Breakfast sets the tone of the day. If I start the day with a healthy breakfast, I’m more likely to continue to make good choices the rest of the day.
Sometimes we have good intentions but get off track. Oatmeal is a healthy filling breakfast but if we add lots of unhealthy ingredients we can sabotage ourselves. Instead start the day with this delicious recipe for Sugar-Free Oatmeal!
Sugar-Free Apple and Raw Pepita Oatmeal
- 1/2 cup rolled oats + 1 cup water (per person)
- 1 packet Pure Via
- 1 apple, diced
- 1 Tbsp Raw Pepitas
- Bring a pot of water to boil. Once it is at a rapid boil pour in oats.
- Add about half of the apples.
- Stir regularly adding more liquid (even plant-milk) if needed.
- Cook for 10-20 minutes until the oatmeal reaches the desired consistency.
- Remove from heat and pour in 1 packet of Pure Via.
Serve this oatmeal warm with fresh apples and raw pepitas.
Pure Via is a great tasting natural alternative to sugar. It is made from the stevia plant, has zero calories and can be added to food or drinks to sweeten them. My husband has used Pure Via in his coffee everyday for years.
I was excited to find them at my local Walmart. Right now you can save 55¢ on one box of 40 count packets while supplies last. The packets are very convenient and easy to keep in your desk or bag while away from home. You can also take advantage of a free song and cookbook/songbook download from Jewel.
I often hear that people don’t have time to cook oatmeal and I have a solution for you. Make your own instant oatmeal by buying quick oats or making your own with a food processor or blender. Once you’ve whizzed them through the blender you have instant oatmeal. Follow the recipe below for your very own sugar-free instant oatmeal packet.
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup instant oats
- 1 packet Pure Via
- 2-3 Tbsp raisins
- 1 tsp Raw Pepitas, ground flax seeds or chia seeds
- 3/4 cup-1 cup water
Pour the instant oatmeal into a mug and add hot water. If you don’t have access to hot water add the water and microwave until ready. Keep an eye on it so it doesn’t overflow while heating.
Top your oatmeal with fresh fruit like apples, bananas or blueberries.
