1 cup water
Pinch of salt, divided
½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
3 tablespoons unsweetened coconut milk beverage
2 tablespoons toasted unsweetened coconut chips
2 teaspoons brown sugar
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
⅛ teaspoon ground ginger
Pinch of ground cardamom
Pinch of ground pepper
Bring water and salt to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in oats, reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and let stand 2 to 3 minutes. Top with coconut beverage, coconut chips, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and pepper.
Overnight oats variation: Combine ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats with ½ cup water and a pinch of salt in a jar or bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, add toppings. Eat cold or heat up. Makes about 1 cup.
Steel-cut oats variation: Bring 1 cup water, ⅓ cup steel-cut oats and a pinch of salt to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat to a bare simmer, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until creamy, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 2 minutes. Add toppings. Makes about 1 cup.
People with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity should use oats that are labeled “gluten-free,” as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.

A nice twist on Oatmeal
I was looking for a way to switch up regular oatmeal and this was a nice surprise. I was worried it might be too sweet, but it wasn't at all. Very easy to make and it packs a lot of flavour. I will definitely make this recipe again!
