It’s been a while since I’ve posted a breakfast recipe. And that’s a pity, because it’s one of my favorite meals! Since breakfast has a unique ability to set the tone for the entire day, I like to try to eat something yummy, nourishing, and easy to make/clean up! (Weekends, I get a bit more ambitious. Check out my Savory Waffles, Baked Eggs with Lambsquarters and Harissa, and Maple-Teff Muffins for some favorite weekend breakfast recipes.)
In any case, this 3-ingredient creamy coconut porridge hits all the criteria above. The three ingredients are gluten-free rolled oats, coconut milk, and water. Can you beat that for simplicity? And yet, the finished product is really all you could ask for in a porridge. It’s creamy and nourishing without being heavy. The oats have plenty of fuel and fiber to keep you going until lunch. And no extra sweetener is really necessary here: the natural sweetness of the coconut milk does the job, especially when you top it with the salted maple pecans (recipe included below!) and some fresh fruit.
Let’s get our porridge on!
