This red, white, and blue Berry Coconut Pecan Oatmeal has less added sugar, but all the deliciously sweet and nutty flavor of fresh raspberries, blueberries, coconut, and pecans, that will give you the energy you need to start the day.
I created this recipe for Less Added Sugar Berry Coconut Pecan Oatmeal as part of a sponsored series with Socialstars and SPLENDA® Brand; all opinions are my own. #SweetSwaps #SplendaSweeties #MadeinAmerica
In a couple of weeks, the big international athletic competition will begin. The best athletes from all around the world will be competing in the various sporting events. Do you watch these events? We do. We get out all our red, white, and blue clothing, napkins, paper plates, you name it, and cheer for our red, white, and blue team.
In honor of the upcoming games, I made this red, white, and blue Berry Coconut Pecan Oatmeal. For some reason when I think of athletes, I picture in my head that they eat a good, wholesome breakfast to start each day in order to have the energy they need.
Whether they all actually do this, I have no idea. However, I thought I would create a wholesome breakfast with less sugar added that was red, white, and blue and was fit to be eaten by an athlete, (and by you and me and other mere mortals.)
I started with whole grain oats, and added chopped raspberries, fresh blueberries, flaked coconut, and chopped pecans. To sweeten it up without adding sugar, I added SPLENDA® Sweetener in the yellow box with the “Made In America” packaging that has a picture of the red, white, and blue packet on it. I love the fun, patriotic packaging, but I also like the fact that SPLENDA® is made in America.
I believe you will love this Berry Coconut Pecan Oatmeal not only because it tastes so amazingly delicious, but also because it is so easy to make. With only a few ingredients you can have this oatmeal ready in 5 minutes. It has a sweet, nutty, crunchy texture added to the creamy oatmeal.
I love to take advantage of the fresh seasonal summer berries, and they add such color and flavor to this Berry Coconut Pecan Oatmeal.
How about you? Will you start your busy morning with this red, white, and blue Berry Coconut Pecan Oatmeal with less added sugar?
