Raw Flaxseed Oatmeal!

Ingredients:
3 tbsp flaxseed meal
water, soy, rice or almond milk
1 banana
2 tbsp chopped raw pecans
maple syrup

Prepare the flaxseed meal the night before. In two separate bowls divide the flaxseed meal – 1 1/2 tbsp flaxseed meal in each. Cover with water or soy milk or whatever you’ve chosen to use. Give it a little stir and set in fridge overnight.

In a blender empty contents of soaked flaxseed meal. You might need to give it a little stir beforehand and it’ll probably have a sticky consistency. Put half the banana into the blender along with a small amount (tsp) of maple syrup – it really depends how sweet you want it but the flaxseed meal and banana are pretty sweet anyway. Blend until completely smooth. If it is very thick you can add a small amount of water/soy milk but be careful, a little goes a long way and you don’t want this runny.

Repeat the process with the other half of the ingredients. You could do it in one batch obviously but I find it easier doing it this way. Chop a handful of raw pecans and divide between the bowls. I’ve discovered true raw foodists don’t use any concentrated sweeteners but hey, I am new at this, and I like it a little sweet.
