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
4 cups water
2 cups quick cooking oatmeal
1/2 cup fat free sweetened condensed skim milk
1 teaspoon coconut extract


Broil coconut on a cookie sheet for 15 seconds or until toasty brown

Set aside

Bring salt and water to a boil in a medium size pan

Add oats,

Cook 1 minute stirring occasionally

Remove from heat.

Stir in sweetened condensed milk, coconut extract and toasted coconut

Stir until ingredients are well blended


Let sit for 2-3 minutes.

Oatmeal will thicken as it sits, yet will still have a creamy consistency.

Serve warm
