Strawberry Oatmeal

Strawberry Oatmeal | Add A Little

I’m so happy you enjoyed the banana bread oatmeal recipe and tutorial, so I’m back with a delicious summery oatmeal recipe!

I have an addiction to oatmeal. I know it’s summer and super hot but oatmeal is so comforting and delicious and I’ve put a summery twist on it by using strawberries and my new favourite thing ever: BlendCo’s skin mix! (It seriously transforms bland oats to seiously amazing I-could-eat-oatmeal-forever kind of breakfast.)
I reviewed this company earlier this week and they are amazing!

These oats are super easy to make and I’m sure they would taste amazing if you added coconut milk to make them over night oats! (recipe below!)

Here’s the video tutorial, so be sure to check it out!

Also, just a side note but I’m off to Tokyo on Sunday but will still be uploading video recipes and recipes on this blog every week! And I’ll have some great posts when I get back, so don’t you worry!

Strawberry Oatmeal | Add A Little

Strawberry Oatmeal vegan, gluten free, dairy free
Serves 1

1 part oats
1 part water (you can also use non dairy milk, coconut milk or dairy milk)
Strawberries (reserve 2 to top your oats with)
1 tablespoon flaxseed (I used Linwoods)
1 tablespoon of BlendCo Skin Mix

optional: sweetener of your choice, such as honey or maple syrup (vegan). You can also use mashed banana if you want to keep it refined sugar free!

Pour boiling water over oats in a saucepan and cover with lid to soak.

While the oats are soaking, cut the strawberries into cubes.
Reserve 2, and cut into slices to place on top.

After about 5 minutes, the oats should have soaked up most of the water.
Add the flaxseeds and strawberries and cook on low heat until desired consistency.

Serve in a bowl and top with strawberries and loads a tablespoon of BlendCo Skin Mix.

Banana Bread Oatmeal


Would you believe me if I told you this delicious, hearty warm bowl of oatmeal is gluten free, dairy free, sugar free AND packed with super foods?!

If you’ve been reading my How To Eat Healthily During Exams series, found here, here, here and here, you may have seen the banana bread oatmeal recipe, so I thought I’d do a post on it! This breakfast is just a superhero – Its so delicious and is so good for you! The chia seeds are packed with protein and fibre so keep you feeling full for ages and you can easily get a portion of fruit into it.

I also filmed a video here:


Banana Bread Oatmeal vegan, gluten free and dairy free
Serves 1

1/2 Banana
Oats (not the microwaveable kind)
1 tablespoon chia seeds (I use milled chia seeds from Linwoods)
Cinnamon, to taste
A few chopped up pecans and/or walnuts
Liquid of your choice, I used water, but feel free to use any milk
note: feel free to use any sweetener, but I feel its sweet enough if I use a ripe banana.

Put oats in a sauce pan with water just covering it and leave it for 10-15 minutes with a lid on so it soaks up the liquid.

While this is happening, mash 1/4 of the banana and slice the other quarter into slices.

One the oats have soaked up the liquid, put in the cinnamon, mashed banana and chia seeds.

Cook on low for about 5 minutes until chia seeds soak up the water and the oatmeal increases in volume.

Once it is done, serve it up in a bowl and top with banana slices and nuts.
Add any sweetener if liked.
