  • 30g | 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons almond meal
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 small pinch of salt
  • 240-300mls | 1- 1ΒΌ cups unsweetened coconut milk (see recipe note)
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar (see recipe note)


  1. Put all of the ingredients into a pan using only 1 cup of milk to start. 

  2. Cook over a medium heat, stirring frequently until the oatmeal reaches the desired consistency. This will take a maximum of 10 minutes. Add a drop more milk if you prefer it a little looser. 

  3. Check the sweetness, adding more sugar if necessary.
  4. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

Use either homemade coconut milk (made from shredded coconut & water) or one from a carton like Silk or So Delicious I have not tried this with canned coconut milk. It is quite thick so if you do use it you may need to compensate by adding a bit of water too. You may use other non-dairy milk but coconut gives the best flavour and carries on the coconut theme.

I also used coconut sugar to carry on the coconut theme but you could sub this for whatever sugar you have at home.
