Almond Joy Oatmeal

From The Oatmeal Artist


1/2 cup regular rolled oats
1 cup coconut milk
1/2 an overripe banana
1/4 tsp almond extract
2 tbsp cocoa powder
pinch of salt
shredded coconut and sliced almonds for topping
  1. Bring 1 cup of regular coconut milk to a boil, add 1/2 cup of regular rolled oats, and reduce heat to medium. I also add a spoonful of milled flax at the same time as my oats.
  2. Mash up half an overripe banana thoroughly. Once it’s all perfectly mashed, add to the pot and stir.
  3. Once more of the liquid has dissolved, add a pinch of salt, two spoonfuls of cocoa powder (I used Hershey’s dark chocolate), and approximately 1/4 tsp. of almond extract.
  4. Stir, and watch your oatmeal transform into fudgy goodness.
  5. If you’d like to add any additional ingredients (coconut oil, sunflower seeds), do so now.
  6. When you’re pleased with the consistency of the oatmeal, transfer to a bowl. Serve with another splash of coconut milk and sprinkle shredded coconut and sliced almonds on top. Delicious!
