Overnight Oats with Light Coconut Milk

Last week I posted a short tutorial on making overnight oats from steel cut oats. Many asked for a written recipe, so here it is! Steel cut oats are the better option because they are less processed than the more popular rolled oats. As a result, steel cut oats are far easier to digest causing less discomfort after meals. Usually they take 8 to 10 minutes to cook, but with the overnight option, there is little preparation and less clean up time. It’s really a win-win.

You will need:

1/3 cup light coconut milk
1/4 steel cut oats
bowl
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup filtered water
1/8 cup dried blueberries
1/8 chopped walnuts

Add coconut milk and steel cut oats to a bowl and cover in the fridge overnight. After at least 4 hours, oats will have completely absorbed milk. Now add filtered water slowly (stirring occasionally) until they reach desired texture. Mix in cinnamon, blueberries, and chopped walnuts. Enjoy cold, or microwave for 30 seconds.
