Not sure of your area but Kroger carries coconut palm sugar, in the baking aisle with the other sugar and sweeteners!

Can you use regular oatmeal? Any change to the quantity or the recipe if you do? What else can you use besides coconut palm sugar? This recipe sounds so great, i can’t wait to make it for my family!

This was excellent! Very easy to do the night before for a warm and satisfying breakfast. My kiddos loved it. I used raw sugar and coconut oil to line the crockpot. Topped with strawberries, mini chocolate chips and slivered almonds. I may take some to work with me for later…… Thank you!

Can this be made with regular oatmeal and sugar? I haven’t cooked “gluten free” so I don’t know if adjustments have to be made for cooking times, amount of fluid etc? Thanks!

Is the coconut milk from the can or from the dairy section similar to almond milk?
