Microwave Coconut Oatmeal

 
Everyone out there knows that oatmeal is one of the quickest and healthy breakfast options around and I don't need to reiterate the benefits of this humble dish. However oatmeal may get monotonous after certain point, if one sticks to the plain version despite the healthy goal dangling in front of our eyes. I usually keep rotating the variations for the same reason and today's version uses coconut. I finish off the preparation of oatmeal with a generous dose of coconut milk and use some fresh fruit and a sprinkling of sweetened desiccated coconut in place of the sweetener and the result is a tasty bowl of jazzed up oatmeal that can be prepared in a jiffy.
 
Ingredients: (1 serving)
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
3/4 cup dairy milk / water
3/4 cup coconut milk
2 tbsp. toasted desiccated sweetened coconut
1/4 cup chopped fresh fruit / dry fruits / nuts
Sweetener to taste if preferred

Method:
* Add the desiccated coconut to a pan and toast until it turns golden brown, stirring constantly to avoid burning. Remove from the fire and keep it aside.
* Meanwhile, add oats and water / dairy milk to a microwave safe bowl and place it in the microwave. Cook until the oats are done.
* Remove the bowl and stir in the coconut milk, toasted coconut, fresh fruit and sweetener if using. Serve immediately.
