Spice Up Your Oatmeal

oatmeal

Some people love oatmeal for breakfast.  I am not one of them.  Every once in awhile I’ll make oatmeal on a cold morning thinking I might really enjoy it…and then I don’t.  But I’m determined to keep trying, since this hot, wholesome cereal is such a nutritious and filling way to start the day.  So lately, I’ve been experimenting with different ways to make oatmeal more exciting.  My favorite so far has been “Tropical Oatmeal,” made with the following…

Rolled Oats

Light Coconut Milk

Chopped Banana

Shredded Coconut

Chopped Honey Roasted Almonds

Golden Raisins

Cinnamon

To make, simply add 1 cup water boiling water to 1/2 cup rolled oats along with a pinch of cinnamon.  Let it sit for about 5 minutes, then stir in some chopped banana, raisins, coconut, and top with a hefty drizzle of coconut milk and smaller drizzle of honey.  Sprinkle with chopped nuts, and for even more tropical flavor – top off with chopped mango or pineapple chunks.  Now this I can get used to!

    Yum! That looks like a good combo to add to my morning cottage cheese protein boost!
