M’s Vanilla Grape Oatmeal

Clare sent this Buddhead this week with one of my guests. They were only bringing a backpack and brought it for me. Can you believe that!

Recipe of the Day – M’s Vanilla Grape Oatmeal


This  makes one individual container:

1 c. water

½ cup dry oatmeal (not instant)

¾ cup almond milk

Heavy dash of vanilla extract

10 sliced red grapes (or raisins if you’re out of grapes)

Directions: Heat the water in a medium saucepan until it starts to simmer. Add the oatmeal and salt, bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Pour into a bowl and  stir in the almond milk, vanilla and grapes/raisins. Place the lid on the pot and allow to sit for 2 minutes. Serve hot with sweetener of choice and extra almond milk.

Word of the Day – mochila – backpack

Tip of the Day – M says, “Sliced banana and walnuts go well, too. It’s great for work meals.  I can make 7 in advance, store in fridge and grab one on the way out to work every day.”
