Berry Vanilla Oatmeal

This recipe really is quite simple. The only reason I added berries was because I was out of both bananas and almond butter (I took it as a sign of the apocalypse) and had to improvise *sigh* and make due with some frozen fruit. We had peanut butter, and thought it truly is very yummy, peanuts just don't have that many notable nutrients like almonds do. Ah well, life goes on. But back to the point; this recipe was surprisingly delicious and perfect for a cold morning. So cold that I nearly froze outside when I took this picture. See my bare feet? Yes. Not smart. 

Berry Vanilla Oatmeal

Ingredients:
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup plant milk
1 cup frozen fruit (I used a mixture of strawberries and blueberries)
1 tsp vanilla bean paste (or extract or powder)

Toppings:
Granola
Pepitas
Chia seeds
Nut butter

Method:
Bring the milk and berries to a boil and add the oats. Simmer until liquid is absorbed. Stir in the vanilla and allow oats to sit for a minute or two over medium low heat. Serve with topping of your choice. Enjoy!
