3 1/2 cups
plain or vanilla soy milk
pure maple syrup
sweetened flaked coconut
1 (8 ounce) container
Fabulous! This not only tastes good, but is good for you! The flavor combination is wonderful - just the right amount of sweetness and the crunch from the walnuts is a nice touch. I used plain milk and added a bit of vanilla. I topped it with vanilla yogurt and the optional honey which really put this over the top! Great breakfast treat!
It tastes good. But I'm not so sure how "healthy" it is... People have this concept that unless its packed with fats or artificial this or that, a dish is healthy. Make no mistake - this is a dessert. There's fiber in the bran, but aside from a couple of walnuts - its all carbs. Maple syrup, raisins, cranberries, sweetened flaked coconut, and honey is optional.
This is absolutely delicious!!! I make it EVERY Sunday night and bring it to work for the whole week. It is just as excellent reheated! I customize quantities and kinds of nuts and dried fruit... I've found its great with chopped almonds and extra coconut. I also like to top it with freshly cut banana or blueberries! YUMMY!!!
I used regular milk that I added a teaspoon of vanilla. I cooked the oatmeal in my rice cooker, adding in the maple syrup, raisins, and cranberries and letting it cook with the milk and oats. This was so good. The combination of the fruit with the creamy oatmeal, the crunchy nuts and chewy coconut with a maple-y flavor was just incredible. We all really loved this oatmeal. No leftovers.
This is THE BEST oatmeal I have had yet. I made some minor modifications that do not significantly alter the recipe. I scaled it down for 2 servings; combined 1% milk and quick oats in the microwave on high for 2 minutes, added the maple syrup and fruit, returned to microwave for 1 more minute, and then added the walnuts and coconut. It was perfectly sweet without the added honey. I love the combination of walnuts and coconut, which gives this oatmeal just the right amount of interest and pleasant crunch. Next time I am going to try it with steel cuts as I prefer them over regular. Thanks for a great recipe.
EXCELLENT. I am just learning to eat oatmeal and by the time I add enough brown sugar to my taste it is no longer healthy, but with the added fruit to this one I only needed a small amount of honey. Tomorrow I think I will substitute dates for the cranberries. The possibilities are endless. Thank you some much for helping me in my venture to healthier eating.
This would probably also be excellent with some banana and/or pineapple. I couldn't taste the maple syrup (used 1 tsp for a single serving of oats) so I'd probably just skip it entirely next time. The fruits lend plenty of flavor anyway. A nice variation for morning oatmeal!
Really liked this oatmeal, although next time I would like to try using 1/2 milk, 1/2 water, or maybe try regular milk instead of soy. My oatmeal came out a little too thick for my liking. One thing I did differently which I will do next time is toast the walnuts before adding. Not sure what the coconut did to the oatmeal, I couldn't really taste it. Next time I think I'll add some coconut or vanilla extract to the milk. Overall a good filling breakfast.
