My Strategy For Making the Best Oatmeal

January 6, 2017

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. 

-Almond Milk

-Cashew Milk


-Coconut Milk


After that, I add to my bowl and top..

A scoop of nut butter:

-Peanut Butter

-Almond Butter


-Walnut butter


Dried fruit:


-Goji Berries




Fresh Fruit:

-Half a banana








-Pumpkin Pie Spice

Fruit Spreads or Jelly


A drizzle:


-Maple Syrup


Coconut Nectar


Some More Fat:

-Chia Seeds

-Coconut Oil


-Coconut Shredd


-Brazil Nuts


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