Oat-less ‘oatmeal’

Sometimes I get stuck in a breakfast rut.

I know when I wake up and I’m not immediately excited to go get started on my breakfast, it’s time to switch it up. Plus, when I’m eating the same thing for breakfast everyday, it’s easy to just plow through my food without coming up for air. Whenever I get used to/bored with my food, it’s time to find some new inspiration.

This here oat-less ‘oatmeal’ breakfast was fabulous. And definitely something I had never tried before but I loved the moment I tasted it. While I was eating this, I couldn’t stop asking myself…”Why haven’t I tried this before?”

It was like a fluffier version of oatmeal. Almost cake-like with all of it’s fluffiness. Plus it’s grain free so if you’re gluten-free, this breakfast option is perfect for you.
