Ingredients

  • 1 cup freshly milled, whole oats
  • 2 cups coconut, almond, or hemp milk or water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp butterfly pea flower powder
  • 1 sliced banana
  • 2 tbsp dried fruit and/or nuts
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

Instructions

  1. In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan, put the oats, cold coconut milk, and salt. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to a gentle simmer. 

  2. Let the oats simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sticking or burning. 

  3. When finished, stir in the butterfly pea flower powder and mix well. The oatmeal will be bright blue. 

  4. Top with sliced bananas, dried fruit, nuts, and, of course, maple syrup. 

Slow Cooker Directions

  1. Freshly milled oats or rolled or steel cut oats can be made in the slow cooker! Just add the oats, coconut milk, and salt and cook on low for 7 hours for firm oats. For more well-done oats, let them cook on low for 8 hours.  

    Finish the same as regularly cooked oats.
