eat your oatmeal...

heres a healthyish oatmeal recipe you won't have to hard sell anyone on...

creamy coconut chai oatmeal

1 c coconut milk (use light if your concerned about fat content)
1 c brewed chai tea I save leftover tea for this)
1 whole cinnamon stick
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1 vanilla pod scraped
3 whole cloves
3 green cardamom pods
4 allspice berries
pinch of kosher salt
1 c rolled organic large GF flake oats

toppings: ghee, maple syrup, honey, ground cinnamon or nutmeg, toasted sliced almonds, walnuts, shredded coconut, chopped dates, raisins, currants, figs, cherries or other dried fruit, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, mango, nectarine, apples or other fresh, seasonal or stewed fruit...

In a medium sized pot, add the coconut milk and the whole spices, along with the pinch of salt. Let it simmer over medium heat for 5-10 minutes until it comes to a slow boil. Remove spices, reduce heat to low and slowly whisk in the oatmeal, stirring occasionally until oats are tender, about 15 minutes. Add a little hot water to thin the oatmeal if desired. Serve in bowls with your favorite toppings. Makes 2-4 servings.
