Winter Oatmeal

Our family really likes oatmeal.  We eat it every day all winter long.  There are variations of it but this is the basic recipe.


For two hungry adults and two children under 5:



2 cup large whole rolled oats

2 cups water

1 big slug of of milk

1/4 cup of creamed coconut

a handful of raisins

1 banana

milk and coconut sugar for the top



The trick to good porridge is cooking it slow.  We bring the oats, banana, water and milk to a boil then turn it right down to a simmer.  Then, depending on how hydrated you like your raisins, you  add them and the coconut.  We like to chop ours into big chunks. It is fun to get a little of the unmelted coconut in your bite.

We usually let it cook on the stove, go get the kids ready for the day and set the table, and by then it is done.  Typically 15-20 minutes.  Stirring occasionally. With a sprinkle of coconut sugar and a dash of milk, or nothing at all, this breakfast is a fantastic way to start your day.  Enjoy.
