I recently discovered coconut flakes and I have to admit I’m on a coconut craze. I mean those little flakes go well with almost anything and everything under the sun. From drinks to cakes and breakfast I haven’t found one thing that doesn’t get better topped with coconut flakes. So when I found myself brainstorming breakfast ideas, I knew I had to make something with coconut, and this is how this Toasted Coconut Oatmeal came to life.

First is packed with healthy ingredients like oats and coconut milk and then its the fact that it doesn’t have sugar. Not even maple syrup or any sweetener. Why? Well because the coconut milk + the coconut flakes provide a lot of natural sweetness, so there’s no need to add more.

Besides it is vegan and can be made gluten free (if you have gluten free oats in hand) and most important of all it’s totally packed with flavor. It’s tropical and fresh, and you end up feeling like a goddess after eating it. Wait, is that just me? But seriously, this is the perfect blend of healthy and indulgent.

I bought the coconut flakes at my local supermarket and then just toast them at home. While a lot of people prefer to roast them in the oven, I prefer to keep things simple and quick, especially in the mornings. So instead of going the oven route I decided to toast them in a pan. The result is crunchy, with a lot of coconut flavor and some nutty hints that pair perfectly well with the sweetness of the oatmeal.

I love to cook the toasted coconut oatmeal first and while it’s cooling down a bit, quickly toast the coconut flakes and then just use them to top the oatmeal. Serving them with a green smoothie or an orange juice makes it even better.
