Simple Gluten-Free Cinnamon Infused Oatmeal

Oats are considered not gluten-free unless labeled because of the way they are processed and contaminated in the fields, so you must always buy gluten-free certified oats. Then you can enjoy this gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free deliciousness.

So Delicious Coconut Milk is the best, that’s the green carton at the market.  The green carton is unsweetened. // For gluten-free oats, I like Nutsdotcom, Purity Protocol and Bob’s Red Mill // For a sugar-free version only use 2 teaspoons of maple syrup – that’s how I love it! // Please note that Runamok Maple is not a gluten-free company.  They use a shared facility, and yes those lines are clean in between as they take it very seriously.  The infused collection is gluten-free and I highly recommend the one I used for this recipe.  It’s fun having different maple syrups from Vermont to try. // Add THIS to the middle of your oats for a superfood boost! //
