Ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoons ghee
  • 1 small apple, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup gluten-free old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick or steel-cut)
  • ½ cup coconut milk, well-stirred
  • 1 1/4 -1 ½ cups water, depending on desired consistency
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice, plus more for serving
  • 2 teaspoons coconut palm sugar, plus more for serving
  • pinch fine sea salt
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans, almonds, or macadamia nuts (optional)

Directions:

  1. Heat ghee in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add apple and oats and cook, stirring occasionally, until oats are lightly browned and nuttysmelling, 4-5 minutes.
  2. Add coconut milk, 1 ¼ cups water, allspice, coconut sugar, and salt and stir well. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir well, reduce heat to low, and cover.
  3. Cook oatmeal 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Remove cover, stir in banana slices, and cook until oats have absorbed most of the liquid, 1-2 minutes more. Add remaining water, if desired.
  5. Stir in nuts, if using.
  6. Divide oatmeal between two bowls. Sprinkle each with a pinch of allspice and coconut sugar, and serve.
