This changes everything.
Fellow low carbers, rejoice; you can eat oatmeal.
I know, I know. It’s hard to contain yourself.
Good question. Yes, we can alert the media.
Okay, so you in the back wearing the”I <3 Oatmeal” t-shirt, you call CNN. You on the left with the “SUffering through Atkins” pin, you call the national news. I’ll tell the blogworld.
This is going to be big.
Dare I say this is better than mt beloved oatmeal? Dare I do. Oatmeal prepared with deliciously rich, sweet toasted coconut is waaaaaay better than your regular old breakfast.
Yes, I love you too.
I’d love to chat, but I think CNN wants an interview.
Low Carb Coconut “Oatmeal”
Tell everyone you know. Or you can do what I did and get on your roof, shout this news, and bug the heck out of the neighbors.
Serves 1 (Can double or triple to serve more or hungrier people)
1/4 cup coconut (You can use reduced fat coconut for a lower fat version, like I did)
2/3 cup coconut milk, almond milk, or other milk of choice
2/3 cup water
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon of coconut flour
Place the coconut in a pot over medium high heat. Toast, stirring frequently, for a few minutes, or until slightly golden. Be careful, as the coconut burns easily. Once toasted, add the milk and water to the coconut and stir to combine. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add coconut flour and continue to cook until desired consistency is reached. Add more or less coconut flour depending on how thick you want it.
I can’t wait to see how many variations I can come up with. Seriously, go spread the news! I am so excited!
