Almost Oatmeal

Who would have thought chunky almond butter, applesauce and coconut milk could make a hearty oatmeal replacement? This recipe is just right for those who crave sweet warm cereal breakfasts with a creamy texture. Try it topped with pears, bananas, fresh or dried berries, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, grated apples, or sliced almonds, and serve it with sausage, ham, or eggs for a truly satisfying morning meal. Recipe based on a submission by Lorraine.
