Spin your breakfast in a new direction and launch your day STRONG with our Coconut Goji Breakfast Bowl — an uber nutritious, explosively delicious upgrade on plain oatmeal.

It’s more than just a boring bowl of oatmeal — it’s a dynamic, relentless food experience. The consistency is MAGICAL, combining the crunch of coconut flakes, creaminess of almond butter, and chewiness of goji berries for a unique crescendo of flavor and texture.

Try it, you’ll just know.

Beyond its chromatic vibrance and massive, multi-layered flavor, the CGBB is a balanced nutritional powerhouse. It’s gushing with potent antioxidants, including vitamin A, beta-carotene, and other carotenoids; laced with healthy fats, courtesy of almond butter and coconut; and packed with fiber and 12g of multi-source protein (fit for vegetarians/vegans).

Whether you’re refueling after a body-blasting workout or kicking off the day with a radiant vengeance, it’s a quick-and-dirty way to fit in a bowl of pure, unadulterated healthy bliss. It whips up in about 2 minutes, 38 seconds with only 4 key power ingredients: oats, goji berries, unsweetened coconut flakes, and almond butter.

And if you want to infuse an extra shot of protein, go crazy and toss in a dollop of Greek yogurt. Or add a tall, frosty protein shake on the side. Whatever tickles your taste buds.

 

The Coconut Goji Breakfast Bowl — Ingredients:


  • 1/2 cup instant oats — steel cut oats work, too, if you have more time. I make it with coconut-almond milk (I like Califia) to add a little extra creaminess.
  • 2 tbsp (1 oz.) goji berries — I like Navitas Naturals. They’re MUCH cheaper/oz. on Amazon (sometimes half as expensive). Buy a bag online, you’ll save money.
  • 2 tbsp (1 oz.) unsweetened coconut flakes (I like Bob’s)
  • 1 tbsp almond butter — peanut butter works as a sub also.
  • 1 dash of cinnamon
  • 1 dash of salt
