Healthy Breakfast: Teff Oatmeal with Almonds & Blueberries

By: Isabel Smith, MS, RD, CDN

This breakfast is not only delicious but it’s also great for you. Teff is a higher protein grain, with all nine essential amino acids. You can add almonds and blueberries to the recipe to load up on important minerals, antioxidants, vitamin E and scrumptious taste!

You can also add any fruit or nut, like strawberries or bananas, and cashews or walnuts. The protein and fat in the nuts helps the dish to digest more slowly helping to keep you fuller for longer.

Make this breakfast at the time you are going to eat it, or you can make it the night before. This meal can take the place of oatmeal or cream of wheat if you are looking to mix it up.
