Wild Blueberry Oatmeal
Believe it or not, sometimes I get tired of having a smoothie every. single. morning.
When I do, or when its too cold, I make myself a warm bowl of this oatmeal. Its comforting, healing, and satisfying.
Oats are naturally gluten free and cook quickly, or you can even eat raw. I use them to make oat flour, pie crusts, and my chocolate date balls from my cookbook!
Oats are high in fiber, which is why they leave you feeling satisfied and help with productive bowel movements. High-fiber diets are also great for regulating blood sugar and healing/reversing the effects of Type 2 diabetes.
Try incorporating more oats into your diet and see how you feel!
1/2 cup rolled oats, gluten free
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons of maple syrup
1/2 cup frozen wild blueberries (or fresh/frozen mixed berries)
Pinch of salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)
Combine oats, salt, and water in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 2 minutes. Let the oats sit in the microwave for an additional 1-2 minutes after cooking.
Remove from microwave and add maple syrup, wild blueberries, and cinnamon (if using), and stir until combined. Serve warm. Top with plant milk, if that's your vibe.
