Joy Bauer is known for her healthy recipes. In this gluten free oatmeal recipe (actually whole oats, in this case), Joy has combined healthy, high soluble fiber (keeps you feeling full) oats, or steel-cut oats, with one of my favorite staples, chocolate, making a wonderful gluten free breakfast. And we all keep hearing how dark chocolate is a healthy choice. Simply by adding unsweetened cocoa powder, sugar or sugar substitute (I used xylitol), and some fruit, makes for a healthy, hearty breakfast. Using berries is ideal. (I just didn’t have any one hand.) As berries are also high in fiber, and lower in carbs than bananas. So, if you’re on a gluten free diet or not, give this gluten free oatmeal recipe (oats) a try for your next breakfast meal, and get your New Year’s resolutions off to a great start, as well as you day!
Editorial note: Carla used PrOatina gluten-free oats in the photo above, as it is promoted as being tolerable for some of those with oat intolerance though currently studies are being performed to document the claim’s accuracy. Other brands of safe gluten-free oats include Bob’s Red Mill (U.S.) and Cream Hill Estates (Canada).
