Do you sometimes find yourself running out of time for a healthy delicious breakfast before running off to your daily activities? Check out this yummy time saving morning energy boost!
You might be asking yourself "why is this called superhero oatmeal?" The name was created by my son Tyler who thinks this is what super heroes have for breakfast, since there are so many "super foods" in the recipe such as my Super Hero Super foods Blend and Goji berries.
The best part of this recipe is that you can put it all together the night before, and save time in the morning!

2 Tbs hemp seeds

Cook on medium heat for about 15 minutes stirring every once in a while.
