This delicious Coconut Berries Oatmeal is filling, vegan and gluten-free. It is made with coconut milk, chia, rolled oat and chia seeds.
It is so funny that I don’t have any oatmeal recipes on my blog since I define myself as an oatmeal freak. I love it so much that I can eat this even for dinner. Believe me it is true. The first time my husband saw me making oatmeal for dinner he was very surprised and said: “Are you eating that for dinner? Are you feeling well?” and I laughed a lot. Of course I was feeling well, but I think only people who love oatmeal will understand this weird habit. Right now while I am writing this post I am having my oatmeal with berries because this is my favorite recipe. Also now that I am almost at the end of my pregnancy I have heartburn more often so in the morning I always have oatmeal because it helps to minimize the symptoms of the acid reflux.
You may think “this is so boring” but there are so many different and delicious recipes made from oatmeal that it is almost impossible for it to be boring when you put your creativity to work. And of course if I don’t feel like eating oatmeal in the morning I will probably have green juice (my husband is the expert of making green juice), green smoothie or eggs with toast. But to be honest, it’s hard to be bored of oatmeal when there’s so many ways to jazz it up! For example, you can make Easy Cranberry Oatmeal Recipe or Roasted Blueberry Oatmeal if you want to change things up. Or try Healthy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies to have some cookies for breakfast 😉
I guess I love it so much because oatmeal brings back my good childhood memories. My mom always used to make it for me and my sister and for this reason eating oatmeal for me represents love and care. Is it silly? I guess… but this is totally true for me. But the difference is that in Brazil we don’t eat oatmeal with berries since these fruits are not very easy to find and also are not cheap. So, now that I live in Canada and berries are abundant here, I love adding berries on top of my oatmeal. I have so much, I’ll also be making this Almond Cake with Berries Recipe! So, let’s check this recipe cause I bet you are crazy to try too. Enjoy!
