Spiced Gingerbread Oatmeal

Serves 1
Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients: 
1/4 cup of old fashioned oats
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk or water
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 tablespoon molasses
1/8 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Optional toppings:
1 tablespoon white chocolate chips
1 teaspoon coconut oil

Directions:
Place all of the ingredients into a small pot on medium heat. Allow the oats to cook, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon until they bubble. Lower heat and allow to cook until thick. Remove from heat and allow to cool. 

*For the white chocolate drizzle: Place 1 tablespoon white chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon coconut oil in a small ramekin. Microwave for 30-45 seconds until the chocolate has fully melted. Avoid over cooking to avoid the chocolate from hardening. Use a fork to drizzle over oatmeal.
