Vanilla Oatmeal with Roasted Figs & Coconut Flakes (Vegan & Gluten Free)

This is a warming and delicious Vanilla Oatmeal with Roasted Figs & Coconut Flakes. It’s served with roasted and caramelized figs and warm milk to really get that fall/winter feeling. To add some crunch I topped it with coconut flakes and chopped pecan nuts.

Im not the biggest breakfast fan. I usually skip breakfast, or eat it quite late. I don’t like getting very full in the morning, I just like to grab something small and easy. But when I do make breakfast I love to make oatmeal. It’s so quick, versatile and delicious. It feels so cozy and gives me a warming feeling to sit down with a bowl of oatmeal. And the fact that it actually is warm and great for your stomach, but without being too heavy is what I love most about it. This oatmeal is seasoned with vanilla to give it some extra warm flavor. It’s topped with roasted figs, coconut flakes and chopped pecan nuts. My best tip when serving oatmeal is to serve it with warm milk. It makes it feel extra comforting and warming. I would also recommend you to drizzle a little liquid sweetener on top. It pairs so well with the roasted figs and gives it some additional sweetness.
