With all the benefits oatmeal has to offer, it makes me look for a number of different ways to make them and add a variety to the options I have. I prefer my oatmeal to be on the thicker side, not overly sweet and mild in flavor. I am hooked to this oatmeal for now. What's your favorite way of eating oatmeal?
Rolled Oats- 1 cup (Soaked in cold water over night and rinsed)
Whole Milk-2 cups
Medjool Dates-2-3 pitted and cut into small pieces
Coconut Oil-1 tbs
Shredded coconut-1 tsp (toasted)
1. Bring milk to a boil and add the soaked oats and allow them to cook for two minutes.
2. Reduce the heat and allow them to simmer for a few minutes.
3. Turn off the stove and sprinkle on the salt, add the pieces of dates, give it a mix and cover with a lid and let it rest for five minutes until the dates soften.
4. Transfer to a serving bowl, pour the coconut oil on top and sprinkle the toasted coconut.
