Gluten Free Power Oatmeal

2 C. Water

A Dash of Salt

1 C. Gluten Free Oats (read the Note on Oats under the tab”Other Interesting Stuff”)

1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon (my all-time favorite is Penzey’s Vietnamese Cinnamon)

3 T. Hemp Seeds

1/3 C. Mixed Dry Fruits (I used figs, cranberries, and dates)

Honey, Brown Sugar, Maple Syrup, or sweetener of your choice

Heat the water in a medium sized pot and then add the sprinkle of salt (adding salt to cold water makes it sink to the bottom and over time will ruin your pots).

Bring the water to a boil and add the oats, hemp, and cinnamon, cooking and stirring until thickened – about 3 minutes.

Stir in the dried fruit and drizzle with your favorite sweetener.

Did You Know?

Real maple syrup (not the fake stuff) is a good source of calcium, zinc, iron, and potassium!

Cinnamon is thought to lower blood pressure and regulate blood sugar.

Dried fruit – such as the ones used in this recipe – are a good source of calcium, fiber, potassium, and iron.

Hemp Seeds have 10 grams of protein per 3 tablespoons and a whopping dose of manganese to keep your beautiful skin beautiful by boosting collagen production.
