Vegan Gluten-free Chocolate Banana Strawberry Coconut oatmeal with a special ingredient!

on 13/05/2014

Because it still rains outside, I needed a warm, comforting, tasty breakfast! So, I made this:

Yum yum yum!

Yum yum yum!

= I made chocolate banana strawberry coconut oatmeal with a special ingredient, called hemp seeds! This is a creamy gluten-free vegan breakfast that is very nourishing, healthy & good-for-you! :) I added organic hemp seeds for extra nutty, crunchy flavour & because they are super healthy too! :) Yes, yes!

What are organic hemp seeds, I hear you say??

I buy organic hemp seeds, tha are unpeeled!! This way, they are the healthiest! Hemp seeds ( hennep ) in Dutch, provides a healthy dose of protein, omega fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants and minerals. These eco-friendly seeds have a mild nutty flavor, and can be enjoyed straight out of the bag, or sprinkled on almost any dish to gain a boost of green nutrition. You can use them hot or cold!

Hemp is a well-balanced vegetarian protein source that includes all the essential amino acids. It has 35% of wholesome proteins, so they are good for you! Not only is hemp one of the best veggie sources of protein, it’s easy for the body to digest and assimilate. Hemp also features plenty of other nutrients including abundant fiber, chlorophyll, vitamins and omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids. So, you use & eat hemp seeds instead of meat!

Hemp has been cultivated for over 12,000 years around the globe. The hearty plant has been used as a food, fiber, textile, paper, and even fuel. It is believed that Tibetan women first discovered how to produce string and cloth from the hemp fiber.

Recipe: For 3 bigger portions

Ingredients:

2 cups gluten-free medium oats

3 tablespoons vegan gluten-free dark chocolate drops

unsweetened coconut-rice drink: 500 ml

unsweetened coconut flakes: 1/4 cup

1 ripe large banana, peeled & cut up finely into thinner rounds

13 medium fresh juicy strawberries, hulled, each cut up into 2

1 tablespoon organic hennep seeds

Method:

1. Take a fitted cooking pot & add all ingredients. Bring to the boil & cook according to your packet instructions. Mine needed 10 minutes of cooking & stirring. When the chocolate has melted & your oats are cooked, your warm oatmeal is ready. Place a fitted lid on & let the oats well for about 5 minutes. Serve instantly with loved ones! ;) MMM,…:)

    Nice breakfast Sophie.
    I like the nutty-ness of hemp seeds. Hemp milk is so easy to make, quicker than any nutmilk and with less waist ;-)

    I love hemp seeds!! They are in every store in Canada, but I have rarely seen them here in New Zealand, and when I do, they are much too expensive!! I miss hemp seeds. I used to add them to my oatmeal, too! Even in my smoothies. This oatmeal looks like the yummiest breakfast, full of protein!

  9. Liz says:

    Perfect breakfast! Great combinations of colors, textures, flavors :-)

  10. Looks great, I love oatmeal but have never tried hemp seeds, this is the third time I am reading about it today, Something is telling me to give them a try I think.

  11. hotlyspiced says:

    I keep hearing how good hemp seeds are for you but you I don’t think we can buy them in Oz. Your porridge looks like a great way to start the day xx

  12. A delicious breakfast idea, full of awesome ingredients (especially the coconut rice drinks – wow!)

    Cheers
