Instructions

  1. In a large pot, bring the coconut milk and water to a boil.
  2. Add the oats, stir well, reduce the heat to low, and cover.
  3. Cook for 45-60 minutes or until the oats have thickened, stirring occasionally. If you want a thinner porridge, add a splash of hot water. If you want them thicker, cook for the full 60 minutes.
  4. While the oats cook, peel and chop or slice your apples.
  5. Heat the coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat and add the apples, coconut sugar, maple syrup, and spices. Stir to coat the apples in the sugar and let them cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cook for longer if you like a softer apple. Remove from heat, add the vanilla extract, and set aside.
  6. Serve the oats with a scoop of caramelized apples an a handful of granola. Add more spices and a drizzle of nut butter if desired.
