Strawberry and Coconut Oatmeal

Strawberry and Coconut OatmealIf there’s anything you should know about me, it’s that I LOVE breakfast, and I LOVE oatmeal.

Having so many food allergies breakfast has always been a harder meal for me to tackle, but ever since I found gluten free oatmeal- it’s been my most favorite meal (in every way).

As with most recipes, I love to keep them simple and easy to make- so I like to keep my oatmeal recipe just the same. There’s always a few constants even though the recipe is simple:

  • Gluten free oats
  • A fruit (or two)- berries, banana, mango
  • A fat (or two)- almond butter or peanut butter, coconut shreds
  • A spice (or two)- cinnamon and always salt
  • Sweet- Honey most of the time

With my oatmeal I usually pair a smoothie or some chicken breakfast sausage or something similar- to add a little protein to the meal.

Enjoy this simple oatmeal recipe, and of course tweak as you need to!
