Creamy Coconut Oats

Author Notes:

A bowl of these luscious steel-cut oats is one of my go-to breakfasts. The recipe makes four portions - enough to share, or keep in the fridge and warm up through the week.

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the coconut milk and water to a boil over high heat.
  2. Add the oats and stir to combine. Once the mixture returns to a boil, reduce heat to medium low.
  3. Stir in sea salt, and simmer mixture for 15-20 minutes, partially covered, until oats are soft, but still a little bit chewy in the middle.
  4. Mix in the vanilla and cinnamon, distribute between your bowls, and add your desired toppings.
