Warming Coconut Oats with Rose Baked Plums
Stay warm and cozy this winter – fuel up on these creamy, fruity, plum, coconut and rose oats!
Ooooh baby it’s cold outside!
When the weather gets chilly, it gets harder and harder not to hit the snooze button (again), and brave the freezing world beyond the duvet. I am a serial snooze button pusher in the cold weather, opting for a few more snuggly, cuddly, minutes and forgoing breakfast. Unfortunately, this leads to unhealthy snacking as my usually manic morning wears on, as I didn’t start my day with something filling and nutritious.
Enter my coconut oats, made with 10 ingredients and ready in 35 minutes. These are a huge winner for me as I usually batch cook them one evening to last 3-4 days. Not only do they make for an exciting heat and eat brekkie on the run, they are vegan and low GI, so you stay fuller for longer, helping you avoid easy to snack on fatty foods and processed carbs as the morning wears on.
You can go ahead and cook the oats without soaking them, however, I find the pre-soak guarantees a creamy and delicious result in far less time.
This recipe will feed two people, for 3-4 meals and can easily be halved or doubled. When reheating top up the oats with a splash dairy free milk to keep them nice and creamy.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I make this gluten-free?
Make sure that the oats you are using are gluten free, and you should be good to go!
Can I use other stone fruit instead of plumbs?
Yes, apricots, nectarines and peaches will be lovely too. Berries, like blueberries or raspberries, can be used and roasted for a shorter period. Omit the star anise when using berries.
Can I use an air fryer to cook the stone fruit ?
Sure! Simply find a dish that will fit well inside the air fryer basket. As a general rule cook the fruit at 160C on air fry (or the bake function if you model has one), and check the fruit after 15 minutes. Remove the fruit from the air fryer once soft
