Call me crazy if you'd like, but oatmeal has always been one of my favorite breakfasts. When I still worked a corporate job, I kept plain instant oatmeal packets in my office along with agave nectar (before I knew better) so I always had breakfast available.
Now that I work from home, I tend to get a bit fancier with my oatmeal. These days I really try to load it up with calories!
I have a few different combinations I enjoy. This is one of my favorites even though it takes longer to cook when you use coconut milk instead of water.
It's warm, rich and creamy, making it a wonderful winter breakfast option. The almond butter ups the protein content, which is important to keep me feeling full for longer.
This recipe is for a single serving. If you want to make a larger batch, make sure to adjust the oats to liquid ratio according to the oatmeal package directions. If you simply double it, it'll probably come out more liquidy.
