A delightfully relaxing Sunday morning involves coffee while seated at my tulip table listening to NPR….this was my morning!
I had some extra time and wanted to make a no-mess, quick breakfast before joining the Striders Triathlon Club on a ride today! Turning to oatmeal because it sticks with you and is generally healthy but mostly because it has a proven, no-fail formula for preparing: 1 cup liquid to 1/2 cup oats SIMPLE!
Personally, I like to jazz things up a bit whether it be a sparkly necklace, funky shoes or in this case substituting coconut milk for the basic water or milk. Not too wild but just enough to create some flavorful bliss.
Go ahead and play around with the accoutrements and spices…I don’t think you can go wrong!
Coconut Milk + Oatmeal
1/2 cup Quaker Oats
3/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup water
Tablespoon of Jaggery or Brown Sugar
Palmful of Raisins (I bet cherries and slivered almonds would be good too!)
Dusting a Cinnamon
Boil the liquids (or Microwave), whichever you prefer. Add the oatmeal and stir it up. Garnish with any fruits, nuts or spices you desire!
