I thought about doing a 5th cookbook review this week….but then realized: It’s spring and I am strawberry obsessed…
Strawberries are one of my favorite berries…yum! Walker (The Toddler) and I have planted so many new strawberry plants this year, somewhere around 60 of them! In the coming years the squirrels and us will be eating well 😉 They joined the already existing ones in the gardens:
A bowl of oats & berries is a wonderful breakfast. Quick, tasty and filling:
Strawberry & Coconut Oats
- 2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
- 1 cup old-fashioned oats
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp almond or peanut butter
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 cup sliced strawberries, divided
Add the milk, oats, brown sugar, almond butter, cinnamon and half the berries to a heavy medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high, lower to medium-low, cook for 5 minutes, stirring often.
Serve topped with remaining berries.
If your strawberries are of the “Plastic California” variety (big, large and not so sweet), you may want to sprinkle the berries with a bit of sugar and let sit for 10 to 15 minutes for best taste.
