Happy Tuesday! Today we’re on the third part of a seven-part oatmeal series.
The breakfast section of “Good and Cheap” has seven different recipes for making yourself some sparky versions of this classic morning food. You can find this one on page 29 of the PDF version (a free download at leannebrown.com) or on page 10 of the print version.
I made my Coconut and Lime Oatmeal with bulk bin quick oats. (See a previous post for a primer on quick oats vs. large flake.) And I sweetened it with brown sugar.
I also used unsweetened coconut “ribbons” that I had left over from some summertime experiments with making homemade coconut milk. (Because I’m kind of a geek about visual presentation, I really liked the way it made my oatmeal look.)
How Did it Taste?
I loved this! I wasn’t sure about putting lime juice in cereal but it was spectacular. I’ll be making this one again.
Let’s Do the Math
This recipe is super-fast. It came together in about 10 minutes and the total cost of ingredients came to 58 cents per serving. That’s actually cheaper than the costing in the cookbook, which is 75 cents per serving.
That’s all for today! Check back later this week, for the fourth exciting oatmeal recipe!
