Coconut Chai Oats; Goldilocks Approved.

Coconut Chai Oats

After Instagramming this beast of a bowl, I got a lot of inquiries regarding the contents of it, just about as many people as were concerned about my sockage going on.

Note: The ankle poms.

The best way that I can describe this bowl, is to tell you to close your eyes and imagine what it would taste like if a White Girl's chai tea latte and Goldilocks's bowl of "just right" porridge had a baby with killer superfood chromosomes and flavor to rock off even the most basic of betches' taste buds.

Oh yeah, and the calorie count doesn't suck either.

Here's what to throw into the pot...

Coconut Chai Oats

Ingredients:

1/4 cup uncooked steel cut oats
1 cup water
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/8 cup dried unsweetened coconut shavings (plus a sprinkle on top if you're instagramming)
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon of each: cardamon, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground ginger
1/2 tablespoon pure maple syrup

Directions:

1. Dump the water and the oats into a pot and cook until about halfway done.

2. Add in the chia seeds, coconut shavings, and spices. Stir it up.

3. Once everything is coming together nicely and is beginning to look just about edible, add in the 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk.

4. Keep stirring the oats on the stove until all the extra liquid is absorbed and your oats look done.

Sidenote: If weird sh*t is floating and not sticking together, your oats are not done. Be patient, young grasshopper, sometimes steel cut oats are stubborn little beasts and need their time.

5. Scoop the contents of the pot into a bowl, top with a sprinkle of extra unsweetened coconut shavings and a drizzle of pure male syrup.

Servings:

Just enough for Goldilocks.
