Berry Love Triangle Oatmeal

Ever since Angela from Oh She Glows announced her Healthy Valentine’s Recipe Contest, I knew I was going to make a oatmeal. Well, I had a few other ideas in my head as well, but they weren’t as good. I just needed a good day to set out and make it. Well, this morning was perfect, since I finally wasn’t in a rush to get anywhere! So I present to you Berry Love Triangle Oatmeal πŸ˜€

I think this would be an awesome breakfast to present your loved one with. You can customize the decoration on top (make sure you use a bowl that will give you lots of surface area!) with a personal message or design. And even if you don’t have that special someone to make breakfast for, it’s pretty nice to treat yourself to something this pretty πŸ˜€

This recipe serves one, but it is easily doubled, tripled, etc.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup oats, milk, water
  • 3/4 cup mixed berries, fresh or frozen (I used frozen raspberries, blueberries, and fresh strawberries)
  • 1/4 tsp coconut extract (you could also use vanilla
  • 2 tsp ground flaxseed
  • shredded coconut, chocolate chips (I used mini), extra berries for decoration
  • Directions

    1. Combine oats, milk, water, berries, and extract in small saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat until oatmeal reaches desired consistency.

    2. Stir in flaxseed, then transfer to your bowl.

    3. Decorate as you see fit!

    I served mine with my standard Mango Peach Party juice.
