Sometimes, you just need a healthy breakfast. And this yummy vegan berry oatmeal or buckwheat oatmeal is just that. It’s packed with nutrients and tastes so delicious.
The warm and creamy oatmeal is complimented by vanilla and almond milk that brings out all the flavors of the fresh berries.
One of the things I absolutely love about this buckwheat recipe is that it’s completely sugar free. That doesn’t mean it’s not sweet, though. All the sweetness comes from the natural sources from the almond milk, vanilla, berries and even the oats themselves.
I must admit that I used to have a bit of a love/hate relationship with oatmeal. I loved the health benefits but hated the taste.
It wasn’t until a few years ago when I really started researching healthy diets (and particularly what celebrities like Jennifer Aniston eats for breakfast) that I realized I had to give oatmeal another go.
I have packed this vegan berry oatmeal with everything I love – It’s full of healthy buckwheat groats that adds lots of nutrients and fibers plus gives a great texture. On top of that it’s also filled with almond milk that makes it wonderfully creamy.
The fresh berries (can also be frozen if you prefer) are added last minute to prevent them from getting smushed. Fresh berries add a lovely fresh and sweet taste plus tons of extra vitamins. You can use whatever berries you prefer or have lying around. In the winter, I like to sometimes switch the berries for fresh fruits such as sliced apples, pears or whatever’s in season.
If you’re ready for a delicious oatmeal that’s filled with goodness, then get cooking.
Well, long story short, I finally came up with a bunch of oatmeal recipes that I love – and now oatmeal has become one of my favorite breakfasts (I honestly never thought that could happen).
If you want to spice up the recipe and make it even more delicious, you can stir in a spoonful of almond butter or peanut butter – it’s so amazing, so don’t just take my word for it.
