Gluten Free Breakfast: Oatmeal with Almond Milk

If you cook your oatmeal this way, you will never go back to cooking it any other way.  I guarantee  it.  My aunt created this recipe and showed me how to make it.  I have been eating it with fresh peaches since they are in season, but in the winter, thinly sliced pears added to it are delicious.

To make it you need the following ingredients:

1/2 Cup Old Fashioned Oats
3/4 - 1 Cup Sweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
Fresh Fruit

Topping options:
Drizzle of Maple Syrup 
Spoonful of plain Greek yogurt

Put the oats in a pot and add the almond milk. Turn the stove on to medium high heat.  Add a sprinkle of cinnamon and stir.  Keep an eye on the oats - you might need to add a little more almond milk.  Cook the oats to your favorite consistency.  I like them a little crunchy.  If you would like to cook the fruit a little, you can add it to the oats while they are cooking.  If you prefer to add the fruit to the oats once they are in the bowl, go ahead!  Top with maple syrup or a spoonful of yogurt (or both!). 

Gluten Free PSA:

Oats are tricky, because they are often contaminated, which is why you should always buy certified GF oats if you are allergic to gluten.  This article explains more: Gluten Contamination of Commercial Oat Products in the United States
