I didn't sweetened this oatmeal, I didn't think I need any sweetener. If you are more of a sweet tooth, try adding a touch of coconut sugar, honey or maple syrup. If you prefer softer strawberries, add them to the oats during the cooking process. The heat will soften them slightly. I prefer a fresh bite to mine. Also I used Soyatoo - a dairy-free whipped topping, but if you'd like to use regular whipped cream/topping, but all means do it. I'm sure it will be just as tasty!
Cook Time: < 5 minutes
Prep Time: < 5 minutes
- 1 serving of cooked steel cut oats (or 3/4c of cooked oats)
- 1 tsp ground organic flaxseed
- 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 3 large organic strawberries, sliced
- 1 dollop of dairy-free whipped topping
If you are not using the steel cut oats recipe, add 1 splash of vanilla and a pinch of salt to oats as they cook.
If reheating the steel cut oats - add the almond milk and flaxseed during the reheating process. Make sure to stir well.
If the oat are freshly cooked - top with the almond milk and flaxseed and stir well. Let the oats absorb the liquid.
The top the oatmeal with the sliced strawberries and a small dollop of whipped topping. Easy enough and very filling.
