Prep and cooking time: 10mins
Complex carb portions, per serving: 2
40g rolled oats or gluten free oats
250ml tinned coconut milk or any alternative milk
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 pinch ground allspice or nutmeg or ginger
1 tbsp shredded coconut
1 tbsp milled flaxseed
1-2 tbsp plain natural, Greek yoghurt or yoghurt alternative (optional)
Combine the rolled oats, coconut milk, cinnamon, and a pinch of either allspice, nutmeg or ginger in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat, simmer for 4-5mins, or until desired thickness is achieved.
Transfer to a bowl and sprinkle with 1 tbsp of shredded coconut and milled flaxseed. You can also add a few spoons of Greek yoghurt.
Second Nature special tip
Remember that 20g of oats is equal to one serving of complex carbohydrates, so you can either have half of the recipe and bulk out the meal with extra nuts and yoghurt, or have the whole recipe and count it as two servings of complex carbohydrates.
