For the manuka honey seed shards
- 4 tbsp mixed seeds I used chia, flax, pumpkin, sesame and sunflower
- 2 tbsp manuka honey
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
For the maca oatmeal
- 1 1/2 cups (350ml) milk (nut, cows whatever you prefer)
- 1 cup (80g) steel cut porridge oats
- ¼ tsp ground ginger
- ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tsp manuka honey
- 2 tsp maca powder
- 2 tsp cacao nibs
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
For the seed shards
Prepare a baking tray lined with baking parchment and set aside.
In a frying pan over a medium heat, combine the seeds and honey and heat until thick and bubbling. Allow to cook for 2 minutes to reduce slightly.
Pour the mixture onto the prepared tray and use a spatula to carefully spread it into a thin layer. Work quickly as it will solidify quickly. Place in the fridge to firm up while making the oatmeal.
For the Maca Oatmeal
Combine the milk, oats, ginger and cinnamon in a saucepan and heat, stirring, over a low heat for 5-8 minutes or until thick. Remove from the heat and stir in the honey, maca, cacao nibs and vanilla.
