If you hate oatmeal, this is the recipe for you! Try it!
I used to hate oatmeal! And I still can’t stand traditionally prepared oatmeal.
But I know how nutritious it is so I was determined to make it palatable. I have an issue with textures and traditional oatmeal is over-cooked in my opinion and the texture is unbearable for me! So I experimented until it was not just bearable, but delicious!
Highly recommended for anyone with a chronic inflammatory condition.
All ingredients are anti-inflammatory!
Note: I’ve included some links to some of the ingredients. They were the best deals I found on some of my favorite brands!
All ingredients have a long list of health benefits – superfoods!
- Oats (not quick oats) (preferably thick cut)
- Coconut oil (a delicious brand such as Nutiva)
- Chia Seeds
- Raw local honey
- Other healthy toppings/mix ins of your choice
- Barely cook the oatmeal in a small amount of water. I cook it for a minute or two tops. If you have excess water, add more oats or pour water off and cook a few more seconds.
- Add other ingredients and enjoy!
My brother’s secret is to cook it in chai tea! But pure water is good to keep it simple.
