Try this simple twist on regular and boring oatmeal!
1 c rolled oats
1/4 c raw almond slivers
1/4 c unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 cup warm filtered water plus 2 T whey, yogurt, kefir or buttermilk
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c filtered water
1/4 c raisins
1 T flax seeds, ground
fresh berries, optional but good!
Mix oats with almonds, cinnamon, and coconut. Combine oat mixture with warm water mixture, cover and soak at room temperature for at least 7 hours and as long as 24 hours. (I find it easy to start soaking my grains just before going to bed or right after dinner.) Bring an additional 1 cup of water to boil with sea salt. Add soaked oats and raisins, reduce heat, cover and simmer several minutes. Serve with butter, flax meal and either Rapadura, date sugar, pure maple syrup, maple sugar or raw honey. You'll feel SO good after eating such a healthy and delicious breakfast!
