As the colder months roll in towards us, we start reaching for warming foods. However, if you're avoiding dairy and gluten, finding a warming, filling, and nutritious breakfast can be difficult.
We love this recipe from Lee Holmes of Supercharged Foods because it is gluten-free* and dairy free. As Lee explains "oats are a good source of resistant starch, which is not digested in the stomach or small intestine and reaches the colon intact. This oatmeal is such an easy way to squeeze in some gut-healing benefits first thing in the morning."
*We recommend using Gloriously Free Oats which are packed and processed in gluten-free facilities and have nil gluten-free contamination.
50 g (1 3/4 oz/1/2 cup) Gloriously Free Organic Oats
250 ml (9 fl oz/1 cup) filtered water
pinch of Celtic or Himalayan sea salt
pinch of ground cinnamon, plus extra for sprinkling
125 ml (4 fl oz/1/2 cup) Coconut Milk
1 handful of mixed fresh berries
mint leaves, to garnish
Combine the oats and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook for 12–15 minutes, or until the oats are tender, stirring regularly.
Stir in the salt, cinnamon. Mix the coconut milk through until creamy and smooth.
Serve topped with the berries and mint, and an extra sprinkling of cinnamon.
