My thoughts and prayers are with the world now during this time. Please stay home if you are able, and stay well friends. This is a recipe children could easily help with as well!
Here is my favorite oatmeal recipe:
Oats 2 c. (I like Bob’s Red Mill GF Oats)
3 c. Unsweetened Almond milk or alternative milk
3/4 c blueberries and or strawberries
2 t of ghee or grass fed butter
1/4 t cinnamon
4 scoops of collagen (I like Vital Proteins)
2 t of maple syrup
2 dashes Celtic or Sea Salt
For the side 1/2 c of almond milk -warmed
Other add in ideas: protein powder, chia seeds, sliced bananas, cacao powder, almond butter, applesauce, semi sweet chocolate chips(I like Lily’s because they are sweetened with stevia, honey (instead of maple syrup)
I have a gas stove, so keep in mind you may need to tailor the amount of almond milk to your preference. I DO NOT like mushy oatmeal…this is more coarse.
Add oats & almond milk to a saucepan. Bring to a boil., stirring occasionally. Bring down to a medium to low setting, and stir-add in ghee or butter. Cook for approximately 4-5 minutes stirring occasionally. If you want a softer texture, cook longer and add a little more almond milk.
Add in the rest of the ingredients off the heat except berries.
Top with berries and serve. I like to add just a couple of tablespoons of warm almond milk right on top with a dash of cinnamon.
