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.
