Coconut steal cut oats

I love steal cut oats in the morning. It’s my easy go to comfort food to start my day! The biggest secret is  to prepare it ahead of time so it’s ready for the week. Sometimes I do this is my slow cooker. Be sure not to skip browning the oats first, it really adds to the flavor and texture.
