  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk
  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 2 grapefruits, peeled and segmented
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes (see note)
  • 1/4 chopped macadamia nuts, toasted (optional)


Bring water and coconut milk to a boil in a saucepan. Stir in oats and salt. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes.

Melt butter in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add grapefruit segments and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon brown sugar. 
Reduce heat to low and cook until caramelized, about 3 minutes.

When oats are creamy and tender, stir in remaining brown sugar and vanilla. Divide between four bowls and top with grapefruit, coconut flakes and macadamia nuts.

Special notes:

For more intense flavor, lightly toast coconut flakes in a dry skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently, until golden, 2 to 4 minutes.
