loaded oatmeal

Loaded oatmeal during the winter season is my go-to breakfast meal. I sometimes even have it for dinner. There are so many toppings you can experiment with and a ton of seasonal fruits. This loaded breakfast oatmeal is also anti-inflammatory, vegan and gluten-free. To make this recipe you will need the following ingredients:

LOADed oatmeal

  • 2 cups of gluten-free oatmeal
  • 1 banana (sliced)
  • 1 apple (sliced)
  • 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger
  • 2 tsps turmeric
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • fresh pepper (optional)
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • 1 tbsp of organic coconut oil

If you want to experiment with other seasonal fruits: pears, spiced pumpkin, and caramelized squash are also delicious options!

toppings for the oatmeal (optional)

  • nut yogurt
  • almond butter or peanut butter
  • maple syrup
  • pumpkin seeds

Time needed: 20 minutes.

Caramelizing your seasonal fruits

  1. Medium-low heat

    Start with 1 tbsp of coconut oil in a non-stick pan. Once the pan is hot add your banana, apple and a pinch of salt. Let them slowly simmer until they are slightly brown (should take about 10 mins) and then turn them around.

  2. Adding all your spices

    Once your fruits are turned and caramelizing, it’s time to add your anti-inflammatory spices (1 tbsp of fresh ginger; 1 tbsp of cinnamon; 2-3 tsps of turmeric; pinch of nutmeg; and fresh pepper).

  3. Oatmeal & filtered water

    After about 5 mins your fruits should be ready. Add 2 cups of gluten-free oatmeal, 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries, and 3/4 cup of water. Stir and turn the heat to low, cover the pan and let is simmer for about 5 mins

  4. Let your oatmeal sit

    Before adding your last toppings let your oatmeal sit for 2 mins.

  5. Toppings

    Add your favourite toppings: almond butter; peanut butter; nut yogurt; more fruits; and/or seeds.
