Hello Friends! I'm back after a little blog hiatus, and I've got big news – plus a lot of great recipes to share with you. Before I share my news let me tell you about this pan of Gluten-Free Baked Superfood Oatmeal yumminess. Even if you're not a fan of oatmeal – trust me, you'll want to make it because it doesn't taste like oatmeal at all. It tastes more like banana bread! This isn't that plain, boring oatmeal you might have had as a kid, or the last time someone made it for you.
This recipe only requires a few ingredients and is sweetened without using any refined sugars. You can actually customize with any fillings you like, but I picked the superfood goji berries since they contain a wealth of health benefits and I like to get them in whenever possible. Other good options would be – blueberries, cranberries, strawberries. You could even splurge a little and add chocolate chips. I am sure that would be tasty. Really, whatever you have on hand should work.
This dish is packed with benefits. Oatmeal is a healthy alternative that has shown to actually help lower cholesterol. It's filled with fiber, which will keep you feeling fuller longer – plus it's been shown to help boost your energy levels. Needless to say, this is a great meal for before or after a workout. Make sure you're using gluten-free oats to keep this recipe gluten-free.
So on to my other news… The reason I've been away for so long is because I got MARRIED! God has blessed me with an incredible husband – who does love all my recipes…including this one! He wasn't a plant-based eater when I met him, but he has gladly changed his ways. Trust me – he wouldn't eat it if he didn't like it. We've moved to a new place and we're finally getting settled. I've got other good news about my diagnosis that I will be sharing in upcoming posts so stay tuned!
