    This sounds really good and is a gluten-free hot cereal option! I have everything in my pantry so will try this on one of these cold winter mornings coming up. Smoothies during the week but this would be a yummy weekend breakfast when I have a little more time. - 11/21/14

  • Tasty, but like most recipes here, they cut calories by cutting serving size, 1/2 cup serving of any hot cereal is not enough for an adult, I think cutting out the milk while cooking wouldn't make much difference in taste when you add the coconut and I will try that. Even oatmeal is a cup serving - 12/8/14
