Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal






I love oatmeal. I love eating it for lunch more than breakfast. It’s a nice hearty meal that easily carries me through until dinner.  One of my favorite oatmeal flavors is maple brown sugar but I don’t like the kind in a box. I like it homemade. I think the boxed oatmeal is too over the top and has a fake maple flavor and I don't like the smell either.

In an effort to remove as much pre-fab food from our diets I haven’t been buying anything much in a box lately anyway. I thought I would try to make my own maple brown sugar oatmeal and I am sure happy I did!

This recipe is delicious! It has just the right amount of oats to sweetness ratio that is full of flavor and leaves you very full. I am excited it turned out so good! With many attempts in the past I wasn’t anticipating much success but this recipe is a winner.

Serves: 3-4
Ingredients:
  • 1-1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1-1/2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/2 or 1 cup of water (Depending on how thick you like it)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 cup maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt
Directions:
  1. Add milk, brown sugar, and water to a medium sized pot and bring to a boil.  
  2. Once the liquid begins to boil add oats and salt and allow to cook until the oats soften up. 
  3. Once the oats are soft turn your burner off and add maple syrup.
  4. Allow your oatmeal to set off the burner for about 3-5 minutes or until it’s nice and thick.
