Gluten-Free Blueberry Oatmeal with Flax Seeds & Almonds

So... I'm always trying to bump up my eating routine. Vary it a little, streamline it, try some new stuff. I know oatmeal doesn't seem very exciting...
But this oatmeal is something different!

Seriously. It's so yummy & decadent, you won't even notice that it packs a healthy punch. It's made with Gluten Free oats from Trader Joe's. Fancied up with fresh blueberries, a touch of maple syrup and a little Stevia, almonds and toasted flax seeds, and cinnamon. 

So what do you think? Sound like a good breakfast treat to you?

Gluten-Free Blueberry Oatmeal with Flax Seeds & Almonds
Serves 1 person
Vegan; gluten-free
Cooking time: about 10 minutes

1 cup water
pinch of salt
1/2 cup gluten free oatmeal
1/4 cup fresh blueberries (or frozen would work)
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon almonds
1 tablespoon toasted flax seeds
dash of cinnamon
Stevia to taste, if extra sweetness desired
unsweetened almond milk for serving

1. Bring the water and salt to a boil. Reduce the heat and add the oatmeal, stirring occasionally to prevent clumping cooking for about 10 minutes, or until desired consistency. 

2. When the oatmeal is almost finished cooking, add the blueberries, maple syrup, and cinnamon and stir to combine. Add a little Stevia is more sweetness is desired.

3. Spoon the oatmeal into a bowl and top with the flax seeds and almonds. Serve with a little unsweetened almond milk. Enjoy!
