Did you know that there are many benefits to eating oats first thing in the morning every day? Oats improve digestion, are a great source of nutrition, and improve weight management. They also contain vitamins like vitamin B12 which is important for cell repair and renewal and vitamin E which is really good for helping to lubricate the skin and rebuild new layers of skin which is very helpful for people who have eczema.
Now, let’s make some bomb-a** delicious oatmeal!
1/2 cup organic rolled oats (gluten-free optional)
1 cup of distilled water
1 tablespoon of extra virgin coconut oil
3 tablespoons of probiotic coconut yogurt of your choice
1 tablespoon of cacao powder
1/4 cup of blueberries
Add the rolled oats and water in a medium pot and cook over medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes, depending on how soft and cooked down you like your porridge to be. Author’s Note: I usually enjoy having my oatmeal with a little texture, but still very easy to chew to make it more digestible, so I often opt for closer to 8 minutes myself.
Once they are cooked to your liking, put them into a bowl and add the remaining ingredients on top, starting with the yogurt, cacao and so forth. Author’s Note:The cacao powder can go before or after the blueberries. I just like to put them before the berries because I think it looks prettier but it doesn’t really matter since they’ll be going to the same destination in the end.
This oatmeal goes well with a cup of coffee, milk tea, or herbal tea. It’s optional if you’d like to add any milk to the oatmeal, though it can be a nice addition as well.
Hope you enjoy this recipe and will consider adding more oats into your diet after trying this out!
