1 cup water

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 14-ounce can unsweetened low-fat coconut milk

2 to 4 tablespoons honey or agave nectar (to taste)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup quick-cooking steel-cut oats (Don’t need quick-cooking for crock-pot preparation)

1 cup blueberries (6 ounces)

1. Combine the water, salt, coconut milk, honey or agave nectar and vanilla in a large (3-quart) saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir in the oatmeal and bring back to a boil, stirring. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in half the blueberries, cover, and cook another 5 minutes, until the oats are cooked and the mixture is creamy.

2. Stir in remaining blueberries. Turn off the heat, return the lid and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve right away, or spoon into serving dishes and cool in the refrigerator.

Yield: 6 servings.

Advance preparation: You can make this several hours ahead by combining all ingredients, except blueberries into a crockpot and setting on low heat. Let cook overnight 8-9 hours. Add blueberries before serving.
