Healthy Breakfast Recipe: Coconut Oatmeal



Alert the presses! I just discovered THE most delicious way to prepare your morning oatmeal and it is jam packed with health benefits SCOREEE

Ok so here's what you need:

  • Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • Coconut Oil
  • Water
  • Optional: Sweetener (Maple Syrup, Jam, Honey, etc..), Fruit, Coconut Milk

  2. Has high levels of fiber and protein, low level of fat
  3. Removes your bad cholesterol (without affecting your good cholesterol).
  4. It stabilizes your blood sugar and reduces risk of Type II Diabetes

Make Coconut Oatmeal!
I LOVVVEEE OATMEAL! It can be made sooo many different ways and I'm always shocked to hear is someone doesn't like it. USUALLY that means they have no idea how to make it AND they are using INSTANT OATS...which basically taste like slop to me! YUCKKKKK
Instead, opt for the ROLLED Oats! 

1. 1/3 Cup Rolled Oats with Cinnamon
2. Add just enough water to
wet Oatmeal. Heat for 30 secs
3. Add 2 tsp Coconut Oil
4. Optional: Sweeten with Fruit,
Maple syrup or Honey. Opt. Add coconut Milk if you like it soupy

Easy peasy and OHhhh so good!!
