This oatmeal is really simple and is chock full of protein! Basically all the toppings are optional except the chia and flax, they soak up a lot of water. I think this oatmeal is a lot more filling than hot oats and water and it is easy to put together. You could probably do some sort of overnight oats by combining the ingredients and refrigerating overnight. You could eat it cold, but I am personally a big fan of hot oatmeal 🙂 !
