I’m usually not one to have a whole blog post about oatmeal. But every once in a blue moon, there sits a bowl in front of me and it completely blows my mind with how delicious it is. So today, coconut cream pie oatmeal gets its debut …
It’s so creamy and coconutty. I felt like I was having dessert and not breakfast … and that’s completely ok with me 🙂 Plus, this oatmeal is packed with protein! With the addition of liquid egg whites (which make the oatmeal so fluffy and light) and a greek yogurt topping, I was full for hours. You could also sub coconut whipped cream for the greek yogurt. OR drizzle it with coconut maple cream. Now that would be delicious, too 😉
