I wanted to share this quick, easy and healthy breakfast combo that I have been addicted to lately. It's a mouthwatering superfood combination that will keep you full for hours!
Oatmeal with Banana, Chia Seeds and Bee Pollen
- 1 banana
- 1 Tbl chia seeds
- 1 tsp brown sugar (optional)
- 2 tsp bee pollen
- Oatmeal (use as much as you like...I like Trader Joe's frozen Steelcut Oatmeal)
Prepare oatmeal first and then top with the other ingredients. I put the bee pollen on top first since I like the granules to break away into the warm oatmeal, followed by the sliced banana and then finally the chia seeds to add a little crunch. So yummy!

Bee Pollen - The granules have a mild honey flavor...very discreet and tasty. Bee pollen has been known to slow the aging process. It's chemical compound includes vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K, folic acid, calcium, potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium, selenium, protein and amino acids to name a few. It is an anti-inflammatory, energy booster, aids in digestion, and supports a healthy immune system. *Make sure you aren't allergic to bees before consuming.
