How To Make the Coconut Oatmeal Porridge
>> Pour 150 ml of milk of your choice into a pot and place on your cooker to start heating up the milk. I prefer to use plant-based meal like Almond milk, Hemp milk. You may choose to use milk from animal sources if that’s your preference.
>> Add the raw oats to the milk and stir together over the heat.
>> Add in the coconut flour and stir all the contents of the pot together. Let it cook whilst stirring almost all of the time. You may some more milk to get the kind of oatmeal consistency that appeals to you
>> Whilst it’s cooking add the honey to taste. Half a tablespoonful should do. Certainly not more than a tablespoonful.
> If you have a sweet tooth, you need to hold back a little, because honey has a lot of simple sugars that may spike your blood glucose with increased insulin demand from your pancreas to boot. Remember, we don’t like insulin spikes, so keep it healthy, please. Mix the honey together with the pot content thoroughly.
>> You should be done after about 10 minutes or so. Turn off heat.
>> Scoop the content into your favourite bowl.
>> Add your strawberries and blueberries. That’s it. Your coconut oatmeal porridge is ready. Go enjoy.
