Kid-Approved Veggie Oatmeal Recipe

I am often asked what brand of oats I use to make morning oatmeal for the kids and myself. I typically buy @OneDegreeOrganics sprouted, gluten-free rolled oats.

My go-to recipe is:

🥣 Boil 2 cups of water with a @SimplyOrganicFoods Ceylon cinnamon stick and a sprinkle of pink salt.

🥣 Once boiling, add 1 1/4 cups of rolled oats and turn to a simmer. Cover while leaving a little room for air to escape.

🥣 Finely grate one carrot and one zucchini, add that to the pot and stir it. Cook for about 15-20 min.

🥣 Add in 2-3 teaspoons of blackstrap molasses (try 1/2 teaspoon first if you aren’t used to it). Fun fact: 3 teaspoons of blackstrap molasses has 20% iron (and that’s for an adult serving!).

To serve- I serve 1/4 cup to each child and 1/2 cup for myself and add a drizzle of @Coombsmaple syrup or @justdatesyrup. I like to make a toppings bar with chia seeds, @FoodsAlive hemp seeds, shredded coconut, and bee pollen.

I also froth up some homemade nut milk in my @Nespresso milk frother, add some to the bowls and top with some carob powder to make “chocolate” oatmeal or top with frozen @WoodstockFoods wild blueberries to cool it off, which the kids love because the milk turns purple. 💜
