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!
- 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)
Bring water to a boil
Add oats to boiling water and turn heat down to medium .Stir occasionally for 10-15 min.
Chop up fruit.
Once oatmeal is ready turn heat off and add the chia seeds and coconut while the pot is still on the burner. Stir for 4 min. Take pot off the heat and stir in coconut milk. Let sit for 4 min (it gets extra gooey!).
Add toppings and enjoy 🙂
