SIDE NOTES:

~ Soaking old-fashioned rolled, or steel cut oats overnight cuts down on the cooking time in the morning and makes the grain more digestible – yielding a fast & nutritious breakfast.

~ Optional add-ins include nuts & seeds – either ground or whole, bananas, apples, pears, dried fruit, cinnamon, coconut shreds, coconut butter, coconut oil, milk, yogurt, cream, and butter.

For those with various food restrictions, this recipe falls into the following categories:

Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Egg Free, Nut Free, Sugar Free, Vegan, Grain Free, Raw

If eating gluten free, be sure to use certified, gluten free oats.  If eating sugar free, use stevia or lakanto as a sweetener.

~ FYI – Oats don’t inherently contain gluten, but the crop is often grown on the same fields that grow wheat, so cross contamination is inevitable. Certified gluten free oats are grown in areas strictly for gluten free crops.
