Summer is here! Well ‘technically’ it will be here in one week, but this weather is giving me all the summer feels! It can be tough to stay in shape during the summer; BBQ’s are happening left and right, and who can turn down that post-work rooftop cocktail. I’ve found the best way to stay healthy during these lovely summer days is to start my day off right. And by right, I mean with a nutritious, protein packed meal.
I’m a huge fan of Bob’s Red Mill products (if you didn’t know from my countless recipes using Bob’s!), and Bob’s Old Fashion Rolled Oats are no exception. Not only are they gluten-free, but they pack 7g of protein and 3.5g of fat. The oats are easy to make and even more fun to top!!
My go-to summer oatmeal: Coconut Peanut Butter Oatmeal
What You Will Need:
For the Oatmeal:
2 C Bob’s Red Mill Old Fashion Rolled Oats
~4 C Unsweetened Coconut Milk
4 T Maple Syrup
Dash of Cinnamon
Handful of Strawberries
What You Will Do:
In a medium-sized saucepan, bring coconut milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla to a simmer.
Add oatmeal and stir periodically for ~10 minutes or until all the coconut milk has been absorbed.
Transfer to a bowl and top with strawberries and peanut butter!
This serving size is for two people! And believe me when I say they are two hearty portions. I’m full all morning after breakfast thanks to this combination of protein, carb, and fat! Start your day out right with Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free oatmeal… you’ll be thankful you did!!
