Hey Recipe Critic readers! Chelsea back from Chelsea’s Messy Apron! The minute that berries come into season we go through them like crazy. They end up in breakfast every morning — whether it’s a fruit smoothie, on top of cereal/granola, or mixed in oatmeal.

To be totally honest, I’m actually not a huge oatmeal fan. HOWEVER, the second I add in some fresh or frozen fruit, I could eat oatmeal for days!

Since I’ve never loved oatmeal I’ve experimented with it a lot and developed a crazy delicious oatmeal recipe!!

This oatmeal whips up super quick and is honestly the best oatmeal I’ve ever had. It’s made ultra creamy with coconut milk. A little sweetener and it’s practically dessert for breakfast! The best part is the toppings — we love some good granola (link to my favorite recipe in the recipe box), fresh fruit, and chia seeds. Whatever you like mixed in granola will be delicious with this recipe!

Enjoy!
