  1. I'm always confused by the coconut milk…is that the coconut milk in the can or in the carton in the dairy section??

    1. Anita, We use only canned because the carton has a lot of junk. It can usually be found in the Asian section or organic section.

    1. Karly, Oatmeal is best eaten
      right away. If you store in the frig
      be sure to add more liquid
      when reheating to thin it out just
      a bit. Thanks!

  2. I tried this using quick oats and it was it unsuccessful. It never dried out. Make sure you use the steel cut oats. Apparently it's the oat that will soak up the liquid 🙂

  3. Is there any sweetness to this at all? And is the almond milk in the carton or can you find that in a can as well?

  4. So this doesn't cook into hard pieces? The picture looks like the oatmeal is hard like a granola.

  5. Tried this last night. Is it supposed to be dry like granola? I'm not sure if I didn't cook it long enough. I used steel cut oats but it is mushy like normal oatmeal consistency. I did not find there to be much flavor to it but oatmeal doesn't have much flavor anyway. Any suggestions on adding something healthy to sweeten it up more, or just use more honey? Thanks!

    1. Allisone, I like 2 teaspoons honey, sucanat or palm sugar to 1 serving oatmeal. Feel free to add 1 additional teaspoon of any of these until you've reached the desired sweetness.

    1. Justaskerica, It makes 4 – 1/2 cup servings or 2 – 1 cup servings. Just double the recipe if you'd like more.

    1. Diane, Replace the coconut milk with either Almond or Regular Milk. Omit the coconut flakes and you’re good to go! 🙂

  6. None of this adds up.
    The total of this would be either 464 calories with honey or 428 calories with maple syrup.
    Then, you have to only eat 3/4 of a cup, which is not made very clear in the recipe.
    Still, the numbers don’t add up.
    3/4 of a cup would be 152.5 calories with honey or 140.7 with maple syrup.
    You also are instructed to add a “pinch” of almonds.
    Are you supposed to add so many extra almonds that it adds up to 290 calories? That would be a HANDFUL of almonds, not a PINCH.
    Very confusing. Please clarify.

    1. Hi John, I double checked this recipe and the nutrition information we have listed is correct. This recipe is for TWO servings.
