Coconut Oatmeal

What you need: 

regular oatmeal
brown sugar
milk substitute
unsweetened shredded coconut

What you do: 

toss some oatmeal in a bowl, pour in milk substitute to cover, a couple spoonfuls of brown sugar, and heap on the shredded coconut. Mix it all up and nuke it for about 3 minutes -- carefully, it tends to bubble up.
Sorry, don't know proportions, just use your good sense. Tastes *great*.

Dinkfeet, peanut butter and jelly oatmeal is my absolute favorite. I use instant, just because I like it smooth. I make it in the microwave with preserves and water. I recommend using preserves over jelly or jam, because they mix in easily and that is essential to spreading out the sweetness. Once the oatmeal is done, put a spoonful of peanut butter on top of it all and melt it in the microwave for about 15 seconds. Then you can spread the peanut butter over the top of the whole bowl so you get pb and jelly with every bite.

I am totally salivating right now after typing that. So delicious.

Horchata sounds pretty delicious. It sounds like everything that is good to put in oatmeal premixed, so I will look for that next time I am in the mexican section.

I have never acutally had scottish oatmeal, but oat grouts are pretty good.

I've been melting peanut butter on my freshly toasted crumpets lately...but clearly I need to switch to OATMEAL! Nomnomnom.


Horchata is that cinnamon/almond/rice milk that you can get at Mexican restaurants. I bought some Goya horchata mix to make for myself at home, but you gotta blend it to get it to mix in with rice milk - now as an oatmeal topping, it's tasty, but not too strong. Always needs something to go with it - like coconut!

Out of curiosity, have you ever made pb&j oatmeal? And what kind do you use anyway - rolled, steel cut, scottish? I want to pick your oatmeal-y brain!


I mostly reviewed this recipe just to say that I love, love, LOVE that Shea made her brown sugar into a little heart.  :)>>>

And a little horchata mix never hurt this oatmeal combo either.


This sounds good,  I'll have to try this one for breakfast. I will use agava instead of Brown sugar and almond milk w/of course the coconut.
