Try this oatmeal that is full of fiber, protein, antioxidants, vitamin A, calcium, healthy fat, and even probiotics. Your family will ask for it again and again.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups organic rolled oats
  • 1 spoonful organic plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened dried coconut flakes
  • 12 teaspoons unrefined organic coconut oil – I buy in bulk, because we go through it fast.
  • 1 tablespoon almond meal – I find this at Trader Joe’s in the baking section.
  • 12 teaspoons ground flaxseed (Why eat flaxseed?)
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder (start with 1 tablespoon and add more until it’s a rich chocolaty color and flavor)
  • 12 tablespoons honey (or to taste, until it’s sweet and delicious)
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 1 big spoonful pumpkin puree – Note: You’ll never taste this.
  • 12 tablespoons dark chocolate chips
  • Dash of milk (if needed to thin it out)

Instructions

  1. Cook oats according to package directions *Feel free to use steel cut oats or regular oats, but they’ll take longer.
  2. After the oats are cooked, add in the ingredients above, to taste.
