The 'Minimalist Baker' blog recently put together a recipe for toasted coconut oatmeal. Although hot oatmeal is a classic breakfast staple, it is a dish that requires constant vigilance. This recipe involves baking the oatmeal ahead of time for a quick and simple breakfast solution that is both gluten-free and vegan-friendly.
The toasted coconut oatmeal bake is made from healthy ingredients that can be found in any pantry. To give the dish extra flavor, three different coconut-based ingredients are used: coconut milk, coconut flakes and coconut oil. These ingredients are combined with rolled oats, dried fruit and flaxseed meal for a delicious vegan treat. Natural sweeteners such as honey or maple syrup can also be added for an extra touch of sweetness. The whole thing is then baked in the oven to give it a firm and crispy texture.
