The best Oatmeal Ever

For me, basic oatmeal is like an empty canvas waiting to be transformed into a rich and delicious masterpiece. in order to to make it rich and delicious you’ll need to add a generous amount of unsaturated fat such as ghee, coconut oil or coconut cream. Don’t worry about your health, because let me tell you something: fat isn’t the enemy, as most people think. Sugar is the real culprit.

Oatmeal without salt is like people without sense of humor. The addition of salt enhances the natural sweetness of the oats. In fact, there should be a law stating that any grain cooked with milk must be seasoned with cinnamon, vanilla, or cardamom, or even a combination of all three. Aromas are an integral part of flavor.

And last but not least, a touch of sweetness. Whether it’s honey, maple syrup, jam, or coconut sugar, your choice.

Now, if you want to take it to the next level, although it’s not necessary, you can add fruits and nuts. This will give your oatmeal additional texture and layers.
