Banana + Coconut Steel Cut Oatmeal

Inspired by Family Feedbag (thanks, Pinterest!), I’ve been enjoying this steel cut oatmeal recipe all fall.   At the moment, I’m addicted to all things cinnamon and nutmeg…

1/4 cup dry steel cut oats
2 tablespoons coconut flakes
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
pinch sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 cups water
garnish with chopped bananas, brown sugar, milk, etc.

Bring 4 cups of water and one teaspoon of vanilla to a boil.  In a small bowl, mix together steel cut oats, coconut flakes, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt.  Add dry mixture to boiling water and let simmer, uncovered, for about 30 minutes, until all liquid is absorbed.   Top with your choice of chopped bananas, brown sugar, dash of milk, and/or slivered almonds.  Happy fall!
