Golden Mylk Oatmeal

By Hayley Tia

To add an exotic flair to your next warming morning bowl of oats, why not try this Ayurvedic-inspired spiced oatmeal recipe?

Golden oatmeal


1 cup of rolled organic oats

4 tablespoons of coconut flakes

1 cup of plant-based milk (we used cashew mylk here, which made it extra creamy)

1 cup of water

1 1/2 teaspoons turmeric powder

1 teaspoon Garam Masala

1 teaspoon of mixed spice

1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder

2 teaspoons of coconut sugar

Top with fruits, nuts, sweetness, and yoghurt of your choice


  1. In a small saucepan on low heat dry fry the spices for 10-20 seconds before adding the water, milk, and oats.

  2. Stir continuously until the oats begin to absorb the liquid.

  3. Just before you turn the heat off add the coconut sugar, doing a final mix to combine.

  4. Top with fruit of your choice, honey, yoghurt, and nuts. Here we had a ripe banana, some strawberries, and local honey.
