Trail Mix Oatmeal

Trail Mix Oatmeal
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup milk or water
1-2 Tablespoons (a rough handful) each: whole almonds, chopped walnuts, shredded coconut, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, flax, raisins, and dates
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Mix all ingredients together in a small microwaveable bowl and heat for 60-90 seconds on HIGH (100%) power until almost set. Let stand for a minute or so to settle.
Note: Use any types of nuts, seeds, and dried fruit you wish!
Here is a healthy, hearty, high-protein breakfast to enjoy before hitting the trail! It's got all the standard "trail mix" flavors, but mix and match to match your own personal preferences. This oatmeal is anything but boring - it is crunchy and  full of texture. The dates caramelize in the microwave providing some sweetness.
