coconut cookie oatmeal
recipe from allrecipes

3 1/2 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup coconut
1/3 cup walnuts

combine milk and salt in a saucepan. bring to a boil. add oats, sugar, raisins and cranberries. return to a boil and lower heat to medium. cook 5 minutes. stir in coconut and walnuts. serve in a bowl with a splash of milk.

*i like this with half milk, half vanilla soy milk. also delicious with 1/4 cup maple syrup instead of brown sugar.


  1. I don't eat oatmeal except for the Quaker boxed flavored stuff, but this looks so interesting, I might have to try it. I hope I like it so I don't feel bad wasting all that milk.

  2. YUMMY!! I can't wait to try this one, it sounds delicious!

  3. That looks good! I haven't been a fan of oatmeal lately, maybe this will make me one!
