1/2 cup Gluten-Free Quick Cook oats

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 portion vanilla protein powder if on a high protein diet (optional)

Honey or palm sugar (optional)

gluten-free oatmeal by mermaids and madames

Place your oats, chia seeds and protein powder (if using) in a bowl and give a quick stir. Next pour almond milk until your oat mixture is covered. Set the bowl in fridge overnight. When you are ready to eat top your gluten-free oats with fresh fruit and optional sweetener. I like using a teaspoon of local honey. Local honey is thought to help control seasonal allergies due to pollens and plant growth. Enjoy!

Chef’s Note: If you like your oats thicker you can use less almond milk.
