BLUEBERRY & ALMOND OAT BOWL WITH COCONUT

I have a minor obsession with oats, namely oat bowls. It started as a child with my Mema. She would always make me oatmeal with brown sugar and salt and a swirl of milk, then click on Mr. Rogers and let me sit on the little stool, warm bowl in my lap. So, you could say My feelings of well-being from oats run deep. But with good reason, because they fill you up and have nutritional benefits that we can all use more of.


* Easily made vegan by replacing honey with maple syrup.


"Always add a healthy pinch of salt during the cooking, rather than after."

Notes: Oats are Quaker old-fashioned oats.


BLUEBERRY & ALMOND OAT BOWL WITH COCONUT

Ingredients: 1 cup cooked oats, 1/3 cup blueberries, 1/4 cup slivered almonds, 1/4 cup shredded coconut, 1 tsp. honey, 1 tsp. chia seeds


1. Prepare oats according to package directions, and place in a bowl.

2. Drizzle oats with honey.

3. "Stripe" the top of the oats with blueberries, almonds, and coconut. Sprinkle over the chia seeds.


Tip: I use sweetened coconut, but unsweetened natural coconut is excellent as well, if you prefer that, up the honey drizzle amount a little.
