When I used to eat oatmeal, it was full of brown sugar and maple syrup and it was mostly instant and from a packet.
I wish I knew how to make oatmeal like this back when I was breastfeeding!
Now, I make it with tons of fresh fruit, nuts and other yumminess and I don’t even miss that sugary sweet instant nonsense from before!
I found this recipe on Pinterest, but it was for overnight oats and I’m not really a fan of cold oatmeal, so I improvised and made it hot.
I follow the directions for my oats on the box, which is usually:
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup water
Once cooked, I add:
1 tsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp shredded coconut
To serve, I top with:
And additional 1/2 tsp shredded coconut
1 tsp sliced almonds and
a handful of blueberries
