Golden Coconut Apple Oatmeal


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (50 g)

  • 3/4 cup water (start with 3/4 cup and add a bit more if it’s too thick, or you can stir in some almond or coconut milk once it’s cooked)

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 1 tbsp ground flax seed (7 g)

  • 1 small apple, diced (100 g)

  • 2 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut (12 g)

  • 1 tsp ground turmeric

  • 1/2 tsp each ground ginger, cinnamon and cardamom (if you’re missing one or two, no big deal, just use what you have)

  • pinch of black pepper

Optional Topping Ideas

  • walnuts, almonds or cashews

  • chopped banana and/or mango

  • almond butter

  • cacao nibs

  • drizzle of coconut milk or almond milk


  1. Bring the water to a boil in a small sauce pan then add the rest of the ingredients and reduce to a light simmer. Add a bit more water or some coconut or almond milk if it seems to thick.

  2. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring often then remove from heat and let sit for a few minutes before transferring to a bowl and adding any desired toppings.
