Introducing ONO recipe #4, a delicious combo of coconut and berries! Including berries, which are rich in vitamin C, helps in the absorption of the non-heme iron found in oatmeal, and adding coconut is a good way to incorporate healthy fats and protein. In this recipe I’ve used pre-cut frozen berries, but fresh berries will work just as well!
1/3 cup quick oats
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 Tbsp shredded, unsweetened coconut
1/2 tsp maple syrup
2/3 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup (or more) strawberries and blueberries (or any combination of berries)
Add oats, chia seeds, coconut, maple syrup and coconut milk to mason jar and stir well until thoroughly mixed. Add strawberries and blueberries and refrigerate overnight. Sprinkle with some additional shredded coconut in the am if desired! Enjoy!
