Coconut 6 Grain Oatmeal 

Lately I have grown to have an obsession over oatmeal for breakfast. I don’t remember being a big oatmeal kid growing up, but if I ate it, it was packed with brown sugar and all the extra processed stuff you don’t need.  Now at 29, I finally understand the real way to eat oatmeal!

This organic gluten free 6 Grain Ancient Grain Oatmeal by Purely Elizabeth is delicious and provides the energy you need to get you through the morning; wether that is work, a trip to the gym or errands. Includes organic ingredients such as quinoa, millet, buckwheat, amaranth, kaniwa, hemp, flax and chia. Cooked with water and a bit of coconut milk, you have a fluffy and hearty meal.

 INGREDIENTS – Serves 1

  • 2/3 cup 6 Grain Ancient Grain Oatmeal
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • Spoonful of almond butter
  • 1 tsp of coconut oil (optional)
  • Real maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon (optional)

My favorite toppings:

  • Fresh berries
  • Sliced banana
  • Granola
  • Chia seeds
  • Hemp seeds

METHOD

  1. Add water and coconut milk to a saucepan. Bring to a boil.
  2. Add oats and stir, allowing to boil for 5 minutes.
  3. Set to low/medium heat and simmer for 15 minutes, or until cooked thoroughly.
  4. Add almond butter and coconut oil and let dissolve completely while stirring with a spoon.
