Berry Oatmeal with Chocolate and Almonds

A plate of berry oatmeal with chocolate and almonds

So what happens when you start craving something? You turn on the bachelorette and distract yourself. No just kidding! I have been craving oatmeal lately so I can't wait any longer to share this next recipe, it's filled with sweetness.

My nutritionist says it's better to eat less of the gluten as possible, so I bought the gluten-free oatmeal and surprising I don't really see the difference in taste between regular and gluten-free oatmeal, so gluten-free it is. This berry oatmeal with chocolate and almonds is perfect to start your day (or munch on while catching up on the bachelorette). It's simple to make, and it will fill you up with no-guilt attached.
