One of my favorite breakfast dishes used to be oatmeal. However, a few years ago, I had to give it up (among other foods) when I discovered my body is intolerant to gluten. However, this recipe is one I can enjoy without any negative side effects. Apple-Cinnamon Hot Cereal is a great oatmeal alternative for anyone with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Plus, it’s 100% Daniel Fast friendly.
Apple-Cinnamon Hot Cereal
1 (14.5-ounce) can coconut milk
2 cups cooked brown rice
1 apple, chopped, unpeeled (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 banana, mashed (about 1 cup)
1 cup roughly chopped dates
1½ teaspoons cinnamon
½ cup toasted pecans or walnuts
Add coconut milk, brown rice, apple, banana, dates, cinnamon, and nutmeg to a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat about 10 minutes or until heated through. Stir frequently to prevent burning on bottom of pan. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon pecans or walnuts over each serving.
Yield: 8 servings (serving size: about ½ cup)
- Store chopped dried figs or raisins for the dates.
- Add 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal.
- Makes a great snack or dessert!
- Store unused portion in refrigerator or freeze for later use.
