Cacao + Blueberry Oat Bowl
Something about the holiday season makes us want to stay in bed curled up with a healthy bowl of hot oats!
This Cacao + Blueberry Oat bowl is full of healthy fats and proteins to keep you full all morning. We’ve also added maca powder for an energy boost: maca root is a staple in Peruvian cooking and is a nutritional powerhouse full of potassium, iodine, and iron. To get the full benefits of maca powder, it’s best not to cook it, which is why we recommend adding it to the oatmeal once it’s removed from the heat and right before eating.
Blueberries are known for their antioxidant properties, but also add potassium and vitamin B6 to this healthy breakfast bowl. We love the idea of eating blueberries and cacao for breakfast!
