A glorious oatmeal to start any day, combining the chewy texture of carrots with the wonderful flavors of apple, raisins, coconut, walnuts, and spices.
Authorbreakfast for dinner
½cupshredded unsweetened coconut
1cupcoconut milk(you can use canned coconut milk or coconut milk in a carton. I've also used almond milk with great results)
¼cupcoconut oil, melted
1large apple, peeled, cored, and shredded
zest of one orange
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a large bowl, stir together the oats, coconut, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, raisins, and walnuts.
In a separate small bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut milk, coconut oil, and maple syrup, then stir in the grated carrots, shredded apple, and orange zest. Pour the liquid ingredients into the oats mixture and stir well to combine.
Pour into a greased 8x8" or 9x9" square baking pan.
Bake for 40-45 minutes at 350 F, until lightly browned at the edges and dry in the middle.
Serve warm with a splash of milk, and berries, if desired.
