Serves 2

The night before, soak the cup of oatmeal in 1 cup of water and 1 tablespoon yogurt (or other listed ingredients if allergic to dairy). In a separate bowl, soak the nuts in warm water. Soaking the oats and the nuts is very important! It breaks down the phytates which keep the body from absorbing their nutrients properly. An added bonus is that it drastically quickens the cooking time.

In the morning, place remaining cup of water with a dash of salt on the stove. Bring water to a boil. Once boiling, add soaked oatmeal. Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Cover and let sit for a few minutes.

In individual bowls, combine the oatmeal with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and the soaked nuts in each bowl along with coconut cream concentrate and any dried or fresh fruit or coconut. Ground cinnamon is also a nice addition. Drizzle on some raw honey to sweeten it up a bit, and you have a hearty, healthy breakfast!

important to add that one needs to discard the soaking water from the nuts-am not sure about the water from the oats
also, it was not clear in your recipe when to add the nuts

I assume that the almonds were to be chopped and added to the individual bowls of oatmeal and not cooked with the oatmeal????
Sounds wonderful - thanks for sharing.

Yes, it looks like you add the almonds to the oatmeal after you have cooked it, not cook them with it. Hope this helps!
