Meatless Monday - Oatmeal

Monday, January 6, 2014

Hey all! I can't even believe that it's Monday. Better late than never! Here's a breakfast dish for you. I think I do a lot of lunch/dinner meals. This one is vegan and gluten-free as usual. I'll make a note at the bottom about how you can keep it raw too. Enjoy!!

Oatmeal

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup rolled oats (or whatever oats you have on hand)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
  • 2 tsp coconut sugar (or whatever sugar you have on hand)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice/cinnamon
Directions
  1. Add oats, water, and milk in a small pot. Bring to a boil.
  2. Lower to medium heat and let cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add oatmeal, sugar, seeds, and spices to a bowl and mix well.
You can add other things like fruit, ground flax, other spices, maple syrup too. And this can be raw if you soak the oats in almond milk overnight and then add the flavor add-ins in the morning. See Food Babe's recipe for her Perfect Parfait Porridge for another option. 


Eat your fruits and veggies, kids.

Mmm that sounds nommy. I never thought to make oatmeal in any other way besides the way on the box. May have to try this :)
