Eggnog Oats were going to my third dish in this series, but after making them the first time I didn't actually like it enough to share yet. I did think of another way to try making the eggnog oats but I also was thinking about the vanilla peppermint oats I made one morning before work and how delicious they were. I this one is definitely one of my favorites! They are so simple too!
To make the oats: add 1/2 cup of oats to your pot, add a dash of salt, about 1 tsp of peppermint crumbles, and 1/4 tsp of peppermint extract. Then, measure out your 1 cup of unsweetened coconut milk and pour 1 tsp of vanilla extract to the milk. Pour the milk into the pot and bring to a boil.
Once boiling turn down heat and stir occasionally while oats simmer for a 2-4 minutes (until desired consistency is reached).
Serve into your favorite bowl and top with a handful more peppermint crumbles and some hazelnuts. ENJOY!
