Hi! Today I'm going to share my favorite ways to make yummy oatmeal and what components I like to add to mine. Winter has arrived and as the weather gets colder and colder, I like my food hotter and hotter. I truly love my morning smoothie and no matter how the weather is, I still want that.. But, there are some mornings that a big bowl of oatmeal just hits the spot! I even make it for lunch sometimes. Nothing like a stick to your ribs, warming, fulfilling meal on a cold winter day.
For my base, I use gluten free oats and I always cook them with two dates, a sprinkle of salt and half a banana.
Then I mix it up. I add in..
Frozen fruit: wild blueberries, cherries or strawberries.
I let everything cook together and at the very end I add in a splash of nut milk.
After that, I add to my bowl and top..
A scoop of nut butter:
-Half a banana
-Pumpkin Pie Spice
Fruit Spreads or Jelly

Voila! There you have it! My strategy for making a delicious bowl of oatmeal!
