the creamiest goatmeal

We call it goatmeal round these parts, and here's how I make it.

You'll need:
  • 1 cup oatmeal (I think mine is the quick-cooking variety)
  • 2 cups milk (I use 1 c. soy milk and 1 c. almond milk, but you're welcome to use dairy, or even goat's milk!)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 c. dried cranberries
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 t. nutmeg
  • 1/2 t. cinnamon
  • 1/4 t. ground ginger
  • 1/4 t. vanilla extract
  • for topping: coconut oil and honey
Do this:

Cook your oatmeal according to the package directions. I throw everything except for the toppings in the pot at the beginning, because I like my cranberries plump.

After it's all creamy and hot and ready, pour a little melted coconut oil and honey on each bowlful. I served ours with boiled eggs, Japanese in-season white peaches, and some sausages.
