Coconut Cream Oatmeal
Why I Love This Recipe
While visiting a "Yard Sale" given for the medical needs of a 2 year old boy with cancer, I stumbled across several recipe books....I bought them all. One was calledBusy Poeople's Low Fat Cookbook. compiled by a lady named Dawn Hall. Some are so simple and yield a lovely,lite, and quick meal.
Ingredients You'll Need
2 tablespoons coconut flakes
1/4 teaspoon lite salt -optional

Broil coconut on a cookie sheet for 15 seconds or until toasty brown
Bring salt and water to a boil in a medium size pan
Cook 1 minute stirring occasionally

Let sit for 2-3 minutes.
Oatmeal will thicken as it sits, yet will still have a creamy consistency.
