Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Creamy deliciousness! Love oatmeal and love this recipe. I make a similar version. I followed the recipe as written except that I used oatmeal packets that were flavored with maple syrup (realized at the last minute that I didn't have plain oatmeal) and used brown sugar instead of the demarara. I also increased the recipe to make at least 3 bowls. Thank you ImPat for sharing. Made it for Pick Me tag game.

Very good! I used the full amount of coconut milk (instead of coconut milk and milk) and still felt it could have used a bit more coconut and think maybe some toasted coconut sprinkles would help out there, but the flavors of the coconut and kiwi are very very good with the oatmeal! Thanks for sharing.
