8 Ways to Make Healthy Oatmeal

healthy oatmeal gluten free

I love oatmeal.

It’s high in fiber and it’s quick when you use the microwave. Yes, even with steel-cut oats! Nuke it and in less than two minutes you have a warm, delicious breakfast. So you ask yourself — does oatmeal qualify as low-carb?  If you’re on a strict Keto diet, then no.  But you need some carbs, not just for the fiber but also the nutrition. So I came up with some delicious and easy recipes to brighten up you and your family’s mornings that are both gluten free and healthy!

Ingredients
  1. 1/3 cup old fashioned or steel cut oats

Instructions
  1. Combine oats, milk and cocoa powder in microwaveable safe bowl. Microwave for 1 - 2 minutes until you achieve the oat consistency you want. Stir in the sweetener and enjoy!
Notes
  1. Milk loves to bubble up in the microwave. Make sure that the bowl you microwave your breakfast in is nice and deep so that it doesn't bubble over. Either that or you can microwave for one minute, stir it and let it rest for a few moments, then continue to cook it until its the consistency you want.
