Ingredients

For 1 serving

You don’t have to put a lot of water, just make sure it completely covers the oats.

Notes and variations

  • Oatmeal is so versatile, you can basically add any toppings you like! I often add pear, chia seeds and goji berries for even more flavors
  • If you are in a rush, you can skip the water part and directly cook the oats in coconut milk. Consistency might be less fluffy though.
