I usually like to fill up during breakfast. After all, it is the first meal of the day so it’s smart to fuel up with good-for-you ingredients. Today’s recipe for a grain-free “oatmeal” bowl comes together very quickly so there’s no need for marathon sessions in the kitchen for this one.

Instead of traditional oats, this recipe uses unsweetened shredded coconut as a base, along with coconut milk. Then comes the fun part: topping it with all the … er, toppings! There are dozens to choose from and you can always customize the toppings to create different flavor profiles.

I have been enjoying an “oatmeal” bowl like this at least 3-4 times per week. It’s not only easy-to-prepare and delicious, but it’s also filled with a lot of wholesome ingredients – and not a lot of the “bad” stuff!

By the way, I have been enjoying this cold… kinda like a smoothie bowl. However, you could easily heat the base (shredded coconut & coconut milk) in the microwave (or stove top) for a hot breakfast cereal.

You may be wondering: does this taste like coconut? This bowl does have a coconut flavor but it’s not over-powering at all. In fact, I find that the unsweetened shredded coconut has a much milder flavor compared to the sweetened coconut flakes. So once you add all the different toppings, I find that the coconut flavor kinda takes a back seat and lets the toppings shine!
