Healthful Oatmeal Latte

IMG_8922We are lucky ducks who got an espresso maker as a gift, and I use it ALL the time. Well, I’m pretty good about moderation, so really I use it about 2-3 x per week on myself.

I love making different flavoured, healthy oatmeal, and I love lattes, so I thought “why not latte flavoured oatmeal”? I did a google search for inspiration and discovered that a Cafe in Boulder, Colorado invented the Oatmeal Latte that you drink and eat!

I decided to replicate it, with a super healthful spin, using the ingredients I had on hand!

Recipe

  • Steel Cut Oats {Steel Cut has a higher Iron level than rolled}
  • Raisins {organic, un-sweetened/oil-coated}

  • Shredded Coconut {organic, unsweetened}
  • Maple Syrup {organic}
  • Chia Seeds {we used black, but any kind will do}
