Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats steel cut will take longer to cook
  • 1 - 1 1/4 cups unsweetened non dairy milk depending how creamy you like it
  • 2 tsp natural unsweetened peanut butter
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • Dash cinnamon
  • Slight pinch salt

Optional

  • Add 1 TBS Ground Flaxseed or chia seeds

Instructions

Cook

  • Put the milk in a small saucepan with the oatmeal and turn on medium to medium high heat.
  • When the milk starts to a boil add the slight pinch of salt and lower the heat enough to bring the mixture to a simmer (usually medium to medium low).
  • Stir the mixture as it simmers and thickens.
  • After about 5 minutes on the heat, add the peanut butter, blueberries, and cinnamon.
  • Stir and cook for another 1-3 minutes depending how thick you like your oatmeal and how cooked you want your fruit.
  • You will need to adjust your heat to maintain a simmer. I cook mine about 8 minutes total, leaving a little liquid because the mixture will continue to thicken as it cools. The longer you cook the berries, the more of their sugar you will release, and the more of a "jam" they will be like as their pectin breaks down.
  • Once cooked, remove from heat. Eat and enjoy!

No Cook Overnight Oats Option

  • Put all ingredients in a sealable 2 cup glass jar. Stir well.
  • Put the lid on and seal well. Shake, shake shake.
  • Let sit overnight (at least 8 hours) in the fridge.
  • Remove from fridge and enjoy!
