Spiced Oatmeal

Sure overnight oats are fine and all… but not much beats a hot bowl of oatmeal, especially when they are full of wintery spices and devoured while tromping through the snow!! This also makes a great pre - endurance workout meal.

Serves 2:

  • 1 cup Old Fashioned Oats (I use GF)

  • Pinch Salt

  • 1 tsp Ginger

  • 1 tsp Cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp Allspice

  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg

  • 1/4 tsp Cardamom

  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil

  • 1/2 cup Shredded Coconut

  • 1/2 cup Slivered Almonds

  • 1 tbsp Black Sesame Seeds *optional

  • 4 tbsp Maple Syrup

  • 1 Banana, sliced

  • 1 cup Milk *any variety

How to:

Boil 2 cups water with a pinch of salt. Add the oats and reduce heat to a simmer. Stir for roughly 5 minutes, then cover and simmer an additional few minutes (3-5). Stir in the coconut oil until fully melted. Add in the spices.

Scoop into two bowls and top with the banana slices, maple syrup, coconut, almonds, sesame seeds and milk.
