This is a fun twist on classic breakfast oatmeal. This brilliant recipe allows you to make a superior gluten free breakfast quite simply. I consider this to be ‘the oatmeal of all oatmeals’. Don’t be tempted to skip the sweet potato, it really makes a difference. The crunchy pecan topping ties everything together. The sweet potato oatmeal casserole is excellent on its own or with fresh berries. Serve warm or cold both are delicious and super healthy!

Ingredients

  • 1 small sweet potato (should make 1 ½ cups cooked mashed)
  • 2 cups milk of choice
  • ½ cup certified gluten free oats

  • 1 tsp. grated lemon zest
  • ¼ tsp. GF ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt
