Admit it, oatmeal has an image problem. As tasty as it is, and I am not just talking cookies here, it's rather unattractive to look at. But with a little pan-searing, you can turn the lumpy and gooey mixture into something divine.


Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
Steel cut oats 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Coconut milk 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)
Water 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)
Brown sugar 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Salt 1/8 Teaspoon
Butter 1 Teaspoon
Maple syrup 1 Tablespoon
Raisins 1 Teaspoon (for garnish)
Almonds 1 Teaspoon , crushed (for garnish)



1. In a sauce pan, add oat meal, brown sugar, water and coconut milk.Mix everything together and bring it to a boil and reduce it to a medium low simmer until cooked.

2. In a baking dish, transfer the mixture and let it cool for 10 minutes enough for it to harden.Cut into equal servings.

3. Heat skillet over medium high heat and add olive oil or butter.Pan sear each serving on each side.


4. Top with raisins, almonds and maple syrup and serve.
