This low GI breakfast bowl recipe takes no time at all to make and is the perfect way to kick-off your day on a healthy note.



  • Oats:
  • 1 1/4 cups raw oats
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp flax seeds
  • Toppings:
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter (crunchy)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp raw coconut nectar
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • NOTE: I added half a passion fruit to this one


  1. Boil a few cups of water with your kettle. I think I typically need around 2 cups of water for one breakfast, so double or triple as you need.
  2. Add all the ingredients for the oats into a pot, and then cover with boiling water, and let it cook for a few minutes on low heat.
  3. In the mean time mash one banana in the base of you breakfast bowl.
  4. Once your oats are done add your oats to the bowl, then begin adding your toppings.
  5. NOTE: make sure you cook on low heat to avoid burning/sticking. Make sure you at least cover the “oat mixture” with water, any less will leave you with lumpy oats. Not so fun, trust me I know!
