Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine oats, water and salt in a jar or bowl and stir. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

  • In the morning, heat the oats, if desired, or eat cold. Top with coconut milk, coconut, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and pepper.


Tip: 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.

To make ahead: When prepping the oatmeal the night before, measure and toast the ingredients for the topping.
