My neighbor is an amazing photographer. He came over Sunday morning to give me some photography tips, so I had to throw a quick meal together! Coincidentally, my stepdad texted me a picture of the oatmeal my mom had made him. It looked delicious! So I called her to see what she put in it. I added a few twists of my own, and voila! My version of a tropical crunch oatmeal! It is SUPER easy and packed with tons of flavor. The perfect way to dress up your oatmeal! And take a load of this photo! I feel like a professional now 😮
1 serving oatmeal of your choice
1/4 cup raw walnut pieces
1/4 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1 tsp coconut oil
1 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp coconut flakes
1 tsp honey
Cook oatmeal (I used quick cooking oats) according to the package instructions. Pour oatmeal into serving bowl and set aside. Meanwhile, heat a nonstick skillet (I used my trusty cast iron skillet) to medium heat. Toast the walnuts for about 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crunchy. Remove and set aside.
In the same skillet, add oil, brown sugar, and pineapple. Stir until sauce thickens and coats the pineapple, about 3 minutes.
Sprinkle oatmeal with chia seeds, coconut flakes, walnuts, and pineapple. Drizzle the top with honey. Enjoy!
