  • 2 cups light unsweetened coconut milk, (can also use full fat coconut milk)
  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup, or granulated beet sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • fresh berries, agave, coconut milk and toasted coconut, for garnish


  • In a small saucepan, bring the coconut milk to a simmer over medium heat. Add the oats, maple syrup or sugar, coconut, cinnamon, and salt and stir. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the milk has been absorbed and the oatmeal is creamy, about 15 minutes.
  • Serve immediately, topped with fresh berries, agave, extra milk, and toasted coconut.


  • Using full fat coconut milk will alter nutritional information. 
  • You can use granulated or brown sugar instead of maple syrup or beet sugar, if desired. 
  • Nutritional information does not include berries or other toppings.
