It’s as easy as
pie making oatmeal for you to have a spectacular breakfast or lunch packed FULL of nutrition.
I wish I could tell you how yummy this is. It has become a favorite of mine and my 1 year old granddaughter, Josie. The two of us make a big pot and eat and eat it. I even send some home with her because I know how much she loves it.
And all you have to do is pile a bunch of stuff in a pot and wait a few minutes and there it is! Amazingness!
I start by using my food processor to quickly grate up 1 c. of carrots.
I throw the carrots into a pot along with the following ingredients:
1 c. steel cut oats
1/2 c. shredded coconut
1 1/2 c. milk or coconut milk (I’ve used both and they’re both delicious)
1 1/2 c. water
2 T. maple syrup
1 heaping tsp. of cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
1 pinch of salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. chia seeds
1/4 c. ground flaxseeds
Bring everything to a boil over medium heat and then reduce the heat to low and simmer of 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Serve with toasted pecans or coconut as a garnish, and perhaps a splash of cream or milk.
Soooo yummy. So nourishing! Try it and you’ll see!
