Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal

A glorious breakfast begins with this:
These are, obviously, Bob's Red Mill gluten free oats. And they make breakfast very yummy.
And cookies. And muffins. And crisps.

If you watch your sugar like I do, you may have given up on oatmeal as it usually has to house at least a 1/4 cup of brown sugar swirled in milk to give it just the right flavor.

But, wait! Don't turn that channel! There is great news!

The following is my concoction for the yummiest bowl of oatmeal ever.

I will give you this disclaimer: It is made in a microwave. So if you are one of those who has all time in the world to boil his or her oatmeal on the stove and scrub the saucepot when it's all done, then by all means, change that step.

Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal

1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill (or other GF) oats
Dash or two of salt
2/3 to 3/4 cup water (just enough to cover the oats)

Place all in a microwave safe bowl that has high enough edges to prevent boil over.
Hit 2 minutes on that thing and give it a good nuke.
When done, remove with potholders, that bowl will be HOT!

Stir in:
Cinnamon, raw honey and chopped pecans (or whatever nut you aren't allergic to, but pecans are the best for this) in whatever amounts you choose.

Top with:
I recommend vanilla almond milk as it tastes the best and gives it that final touch.

Stir the whole thing and dive in.

Not only have you had a nutritious start to your day, you feel like you have eaten something you really shouldn't have. But nothing could be further from the truth!

And that is the sheer beauty of it.

Happy Good Morning Sunshines!
