Creamy Coconut Oatmeal

Hey guys, in my past Meal Diary post I mentioned this coconut oatmeal that I’ve been obsessed with. The only issue I have with it is that it’s processed and from a box. Soooo I’ve decided to recreate this recipe using whole ingredients. Lately I’ve been having a lot of strange dreams and apparently I’ve been dreaming about this oatmeal. My boyfriend told me that I screamed out ‘COCONUT’ while I was asleep haha. So I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 of rolled oats
  • 1tbsp of chia seeds
  • 2tbsps of dehydrated unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup of coconut milk
  • half a banana
  • other fruit to top
  • crushed pecans (optional)
  • sweetener like honey or maple syrup (optional)
