[PART3] 3 Incredibly Comforting Breakfast Oat Bowls UNDER 350 CALORIES

3 incredibly comforting Breakfast Oat Bowls Under 350 Calories

Oat bowls are probably my favourite healthy breakfast pick in cold weather! I mean, can you think of anything cozier (unfortunately bacon and eggs don’t quite make the “healthy” column)?

I actually get a lot of my inspiration from Instagram, and often see delicious-looking bowls of oats that make my mouth water! So naturally, I decided it was time to share some of my own ideas with you guys.

I always like knowing exactly what I am putting into my body, so it’s all good and well these Oat Bowls on Instagram are overflowing with chocolate chips and honey and peanut butter and and and…

In my head, I’m going,”Joh! People probably think these bowls are healthy, but meanwhile, back at the ranch, you’re knocking back like 800 calories eating one of these babies!”.

Don’t judge me. I was a chubby kid, so for a long time in my life, I was obsessing over calories. Haha, guess I still am – but more for YOU guys than for me. After so many years of calorie counting, I now know EXACTLY how many calories and macros are in pretty much everything! And I want to share that knowledge with you all, so you can make good and healthy food choices and NOT be fooled into eating pseudo-healthy foods.

If any of you are frequent readers of my blog, you would be familiar with this kind of usual rant

Now, let’s continue with why we are all here: these incredibly comforting oat bowls under 350 calories

1. CINNAMON, POMEGRANATE & APPLE OAT BOWL

Who new pomegranate and oats was such a fab combination? Initially, I experimented with the combination purely because of the visual appeal of colour. Pomegranate is such a beautiful fruit, and the addition to this oat bowl was BEAUTIFUL! I was so happy the partnership tasted JUST as good It hit such a lovely sweet spot (I have to confess I loved it so much, I had it for supper that same night!).

2. DARK CHOCOLATE & PEANUT BUTTER OAT BOWL

My. GOODNESS!!! I think I’m labeling this one as my absolute favourite I knew I would love it (because I am a HUGE fan of peanut butter), but the combination of peanut butter and dark chocolate was positively sinful! The entire bowl wasn’t very calorie-dense, but I think the mixture of dark cocoa and salty peanut butter completely hit the spot. Maybe not a great option for everyday…but when you really need all your cravings satisfied in one not-so-unhealthy swoop – give this one a try for sure!
