Inspiration: GLUTEN-FREE OATS with MAPLE SYRUP and GOAT’S MILK

Who doesn’t love a warm bowl of oatmeal on a cold fall day?

People with Celiac disease.  Unless…..

It’s made with gluten-free oats!  Try my favorite: Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Oats.  After finding them on sale at the local health food market, and perusing every aisle of The Brooklyn Kitchen, I ended up with quite the inspiration, and Sunday morning treat: Gluten Free Oatmeal with Maple Syrup and Goat’s Milk.

Super easy: simply boil 2 cups water and 1/2 tsp. sea salt, add in 1 cup GF oats, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until no excess water remains.  Remove from heat, top with 1 tsp. (or 1 tbs.) cinnamon (I use a lot– LOVE that stuff), stir, and spoon into two bowls.  Top each bowl with 1/2 tbs. maple syrup, and desired amount of goat’s milk.

The beauty here?  Goat’s milk is easier to digest for those with lactose intolerances, yet still has that creaminess and calcium that Dairy Bubble Children miss in their diets.  Gluten-free oats have soluble fiber, the mineral benefits of whole grains, and are, yes, gluten-free.  Maple syrup is a non-refined sugar, and is easier to digest than cane sugar.

Start your morning with something that’ll fill you up, body and soul.
