PINA COLADA OATMEAL- Vegan, Gluten-Free & Refined Sugar-Free

Two things my mom loves are oatmeal and the summer. I also love oatmeal but really only love the idea of summer. Sure, warm and sunny weather definitely sounds appealing, but only if I don’t have to physically move. I always look forward to summer, but the second I have to start living in it I melt into a blob and dream about the fall/winter. One thing I do absolutely love about the summer though is the flavours. And nothing beats the combination of pineapple and coconut…hello Pina Colada’s!!!

  1. You know it isn’t necessary to cook oatmeal. Here in FL it gets really hot in the summer and a bowl of hot cereal is massively unappealing. So, I started using it “raw” (it’s actually steamed before rolling.) As I became more into fresh fruits and vegetables I reversed the roles of fruit and cereal… I now have a bowl of fruit with a “sprinkles” topping made from oatmeal, flax or chia seeds, nuts and coconut. For this recipe, I would use use a cup or 2 of pineapple, 8g each of nuts and coconut, 4g flax seeds. However, I would probably do fresh mango and strawberries with a smaller amount of pineapple, because pineapple can be pretty overwhelming first thing in the morning. Some great additions to the fruit are shredded carrots and sunflower microgreens.

  2. Hi Erin,
    What great flavors for your oatmeal, we will just love it! Hope you are having a great weekend and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

  3. Mmm…reminds me of my pineapple muffins. I never think of putting pineapple in hot foods, but whenever I do, I remember how good it tastes. Thanks for another week of joining in at 5-Ingredient Mondays!
