  • 1 1/4 cup whole rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil (can substitute canola oil for milder flavor)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp fine salt
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp maple syrup


  1. Place oats in a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring every so often, until lightly toasted and fragrant, 5- 7 minutes. 
  2. Transfer to a blender and blend on high until a very fine flour forms, 2- 3 minutes. Add coconut flakes and blend until mixture is very fine and begins to clump, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add olive oil, coconut oil, cinnamon, ginger, salt and brown sugar and blend until smooth, about 1 minute. Mix in maple syrup until just combined. Transfer to a jar, cover and store at room temperature for up to 3 weeks.
