Simple Oatmeal


  • 1 3/4 cup water
  • 4 medjool dates diced small
  • dash of salt
  • zest of a small orange
  • 2 teaspoon coconut oil
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 3 Tablespoon shredded coconut
  • 2 Tablespoon hemp or chia seeds
  • 1 cup rolled oats (choose certified gluten free if needed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • non dairy milk to thin as needed


  • Pour the water into a small saucepan and begin to bring to a boil.  
  • While it is heating up, add the dates, salt, orange zest, coconut oil, cinnamon, coconut and hemp/chia seeds. 
  • Once the water comes to a boil add the rolled oats and reduce the heat to a simmer. Allow to simmer until the oats are soft and cooked through—the oatmeal will be fairly thick. 
  • Remove from heat. Add vanilla and thin with coconut milk to reach your desired consistency. 
  • Serve and enjoy!
