As you probably know, I’m a huge fan of oatmeal. Since I also love coconuts, I thought I’d try out a bit of a tropical flavour and it worked so well! The flavour of coconut and banana and nuts go super well together and the dollop of coconut yoghurt on top gives it that decadent feel!
I’m sure you could always make this into overnight oats and it would be equally delicious!
Sorry that there’s no video this week by the way – if you saw my last post, you’d see that I’m away so I’ve scheduled posts for the next 4 weeks! This oatmeal cooks the same way as you would make my other recipes, whether its banana bread oatmeal or strawberry oatmeal – so you can check those posts out for a tutorial!
Coco-nutty Oatmeal vegan, gluten free, dairy free
1 part oats
1 banana (1/2 mashed to put into the oatmeal)
1 part coconut milk
1 part boiling water
Handful of nuts
1 tablespoon of flaxseeds (I used Linwoods)
Dollop of coconut yoghurt (I used COYO)
Soak the oats in boiling water for about 15 minutes in the pan with the lid on.
After 15 minutes, add the coconut milk, mashed banana and flaxseeds.
Cook on a low heat for about 5 minutes until desired consistency.
Serve in a bowl with bananas, chopped nuts and a dollop of yoghurt.
