Pan-Seared Oatmeal

1 1/2 cups Nash’s naked oats
2 cups milk or coconut milk
2 cups water
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt

Put the oats into a food processor or blender and pulse to coarse-grind. Bring the milk and water to a boil, add brown sugar, salt and oats, and then let simmer, stirring constantly, for 20 minutes, or until thick and the oats are soft.

Pour the mixture into a rectangular baking dish and let cool for at least an hour to become solidified. Meanwhile, bring 1 cup honey to a boil. Put some fruit, like berries or cut up apple in a bowl and pour the honey over them. Let stand.

Lightly coat a frying pan with oil or butter. Place on medium heat. Cut the oatmeal into squares and sear each piece on each side. Place on plates and pour the warm honey/fruit mixture over the tops. Garnish with a little grated coconut and slivered almonds.
