Strawberries & Cream Oatmeal
Another oatmeal recipe! I told you I love oatmeal, and I haven't had it in months, so I am going to be making it a lot. When my husband came out this morning and I had this on the table, he said, "Oh this looks fun!" Oatmeal is usually plain here, but I am trying to get more creative and have my 3 year old eat more fresh fruit. After eating it, my hubby exclaimed "That was the BEST oatmeal I have ever had!" Yay!!!! I was really excited and couldn't wait to share with ya!
1 3/4 cups dry gluten-free oats
5 strawberries, stems removed & sliced
heavy whipping cream (Costco has the BEST deal on organic whipping cream 1/2 gallon for 5 something)
Cook the oats according to package directions. I usually just barely cover the oats with water, bring to a boil, stir and simmer on low till ready to eat. Add coconut oil to the bowls first, about a tablespoon each. Add the cooked oats, sliced strawberries, drizzle with agave and pour about 1/4-1/2 cup whipping cream (or milk of choice) over the top, mix & serve. It was fabulous and will be making many appearances at our breakfast table!
