These slow cooked oats are creamy, coconutty, and just a little bit spicy. Ground turmeric and cinnamon add just the right amount of warm flavors to make your morning oatmeal that much more cozy. To sweeten our oatmeal and dial up the coconut vibes we use coconut sugar, which is toasty and tropical in flavor, but brown sugar can be substituted in a pinch. In this recipe, the oats are cooked until fairly set; add extra hot water to the finished oats to thin to your desired consistency if needed.
