Hello my dears!

When you read this I might not actually have internet yet, but I will hopefully have arrived safely in New York City. I’m actually currently in a train to Vienna, where I even have the luxury of free wifi that actually works. I’m impressed! Well done ÖBB 😀

So what is this Monday’s breakfast recipe? I decided to keep it simple and share my favorite way to make oatmeal with you. Making oatmeal is really no big deal and very quick to do. I still think that there are a few different ways to do it and therefore I want to share with you how I do it. Oats were also pretty much the only thing that was left in my pantry this week, because I managed to use up all of my quinoa, millet and buckwheat. So, without further chit-chat, let’s jump right in to the recipe!

Simple Coconut Oatmeal

Yield: 1 serving


  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • several nuts (hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts…)
  • ginger
  • cinnamon
  • cardamom
  • salt
  • 1 Tbsp shredded coconut
  • lots of fruit

Cooking Directions

  1. Boil the water – I simply make more when I boil water for my tea.
  2. Add the oats in a shallow pot or pan, add in all the spices, the shredded coconut and add hot water so the oats are fully covered
  3. If you like your nuts soaked and cooked, you can add them now or save them for later
  4. Go get ready and let the oats soak up the hot water.
  5. When you come back, turn on the stove, let the oats boil up once and turn off the heat.
  6. Stir a few times, and your oats are done!
  7. Add lots of fruit on top, nuts, some more shredded coconut and whatever else you enjoy in your oatmeal.
