You get to choose between eating steel cut oats and rolled oats, the difference is in their texture. Steel cut oats is less gummy and have a crunchy texture. Eating oatmeal with coconut oil is a great way to eat breakfast each morning! The great thing about oatmeal is that it is like a great blank canvas – you can add whatever you want to it and enjoy. Here is a delicious, high-energy, protein-packed version you can try:
Cook oatmeal by adding equal parts of water, bringing it to a boil. Once it is cooked, just add the rest of the ingredients! You can vary your oatmeal breakfast each day by switching to berries, bananas, strawberries and almonds. You can also add organic maple syrup, honey or stevia/agave if you want your oats to be a little on the sweet side. A full bowl of oatmeal is around 500 calories and will keep you full for several hours. Enjoy!
One of the best things about coconut oil is that you can use it in your coffee or like above, in your oatmeal. Coconut oil adds a buttery richness to your oatmeal in a healthy, good way.
