Purely Pinole Superfood Oatmeal Recipe

Purely Pinole Superfood Oatmeal Recipe

With all the rain this past week, I have really been craving comfort foods – that and the fact that I’m in the last leg of this pregnancy, so my nesting is in full gear! And although the temp hasn’t really dropped below 80, that’s cool compared to what it’s been. Plus, eating a nice hearty breakfast seems to be my meal of choice because, once again (just as it was in the first trimester), finding any food that actually sounds good enough to eat is getting harder each day that passes….

I’ve had everything from omelets to pancakes, but one of my favorites has to be the Purely Pinole Superfood Oatmeal that I’ve made. Best of all – my kids love it too and thanks to me doubling the recipe, we’ve had enough for multiple breakfasts, making our morning routine run that much more smoothly.

So what is Pinole, you ask? If you want lots of detail, you can check out my FULL REVIEW, otherwise, here’s a quick run-down. Pinole is a maize-based porridge of sorts, seasoned with hints of Cacao, Cinnamon and Allspice. Traditionally created by the Aztecs in order to give them lasting energy, there’s no doubt that this breakfast will help power you through your day as well!

And while I think Pinole is great by itself, you know I like to put my own tweak on recipes and is why I’ve made this Pinole-infused Oatmeal. Trust me, after trying it you won’t be disappointed!

Purely Pinole Superfood Oatmeal Recipe

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 cups Purified Water
  • ½ cup Oats
  • ½ cup Purely Pinole
  • ¼ cup Quinoa Flakes
  • ½ cup Vanilla Protein Powder (I use this one, by Orgain)
  • ½ tsp. Sea Salt
  • 2 TB. Coconut Oil (optional)
  • Milk of Choice, to taste (optional)
  • Toppings of Choice: I used Fresh Blueberries and Toasted Coconut Chips (HERE are a few brands I love)

Purely Pinole recipe

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Stir together the Oats, Pinole and Quinoa Flakes with Water, and bring to a low boil.
  2. Begin to stir the mixture and reduce the heat to a low simmer.
  3. Once the Pinole starts to thicken, add in the Protein Powder and Sea Salt.
  4. If the mixture seems too thick, feel free to add more liquid; if it’s too thin, turn up the heat and let it boil for a little while longer.
  5. Once you reach your desired consistency, turn off the heat and add in the Coconut Oil. I also like to add a splash of Almond Milk here to make it a little bit creamier.
  6. Divide up the Pinole-Oatmeal amongst your bowls and top with whatever toppings you love most.**
  7. Enjoy!

NOTES:

  • The great thing about this recipe is that you can switch things up everyday and never get bored! There are literally hundreds of combinations you can try!
  • Another favorite: Mango, Coconut Milk + Coconut Chips – so it’s like a spin on your traditional Thai Sticky Rice.
  • Oh, and topping it with a Square Organics bar is always a win! (Use my code ~ healthyfitfabmoms ~ to get 20% OFF your order).

Want to take it on-the-go?

This breakfast can easily be put into small mason jars, or even squeezable pouches and can be eaten in the car or included in school lunches (because it’s great cold too)! The options truly are endless!
