Perfect Oats

1 Cup Dry Dates

2 Cups Water

3 Teaspoons Coriander

3 Teaspoons Cinnamon

1 Cup Rice Milk

1 Cup Old Fashioned or Steel Cut oats

1 Cup Blueberries

1 Cup Raisins

1 Cup Ground Flax Seed

Chop dates in a food processor and slowly add rice milk. You will not get a smooth consistency, but you will get close. Soaking the dates in the rice milk overnight helps but I rarely do this myself.

Place your date/rice milk mixture, water, coriander and cinnamon in a pot to boil.

Add oats, flax and raisins to the boil and turn heat down to a simmer. Simmer for about 15 minutes. You may need to add more rice milk to reach your preferred consistency. Add blueberries, mix and serve.

This is one of my more complex recipes, but  you will be surprised where oatmeal can take you. This exotic oat dish has a distinctive eastern flavor that is sure to satisfy anyone’s morning sweet-tooth.
