Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15-20 minutes

Total Time: 20-25 minutes

Serves: 3-4 (3 if served immediately, 4 if made ahead and served re-heated with additional milk)

Difficulty: 2/10







INGREDIENTS


Oatmeal – 4 servings

  • 1 cup oats (use gluten free oats for gluten free oatmeal)

  • 1 can (400 ml) coconut milk (the oatmeal will be creamier if you use full fat coconut milk)

  • 1 cup milk of choice (use plant milk for vegan oatmeal)

  • zest of 1 lemon

  • 2 Tbsp agave nectar + more if needed (alternatively use maple syrup or honey) - use agave nectar or maple syrup for vegan oatmeal

  • 2 cups blackberries (I used fresh, but frozen blackberries will work as well!) + more to top the oatmeal


INSTRUCTIONS


The Oatmeal:

1. Add oats to a pot on medium-high heat along with the coconut milk, milk of choice, lemon zest, blackberries and agave nectar. Stir to combine the ingredients.

2. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and allow to cook for about 15-20 minutes. Stir frequently to prevent burning.


** The oatmeal can be prepared in advance and stored in the fridge.


Re-heating:

3. If prepared in advance, when you’d like to enjoy the oatmeal, remove it from the fridge and add in extra milk (approx. 1/4 cup per serving) until it reaches the desired consistency (add more milk if you like your oatmeal thinner).

4. Heat it up in a pot on the stove or in the microwave. Stir frequently to prevent burning (stove) or uneven distribution of heat (microwave). Taste and adjust sweetness.


Assembly:

5. Add the oatmeal to a bowl and top with the toppings of choice.
