- Bring 2 cups of water to a boil, reduce heat and add the oil and the sugar. Let simmer while you prepare the oats.
2. Grind the oatmeal in a coffee grinder.
3. Dry roast the sesame seeds and coconut shavings on medium heat until they start to brown. Take care to stir frequently as they easily burn once they start to turn brown.

How Can Roasted Coconut Sesame Oatmeal Make You Feel Great?
Enjoy the satisfying creaminess of piping hot oatmeal topped with the nutty aroma of roasted sesame and coconut. As the weather turns cool in early fall, your body seems to crave the hearty warmth of roasted nuts & grains. Here the bold & flavorful crunch of roasted coconut & sesame adds more than adventure. Sesame’s natural warming properties make for a robust start to a hectic day, while coconut’s sweetness is a stress-soothing balm on busy, bustling mornings. Life seems more comfortable after this rich, nourishing breakfast treat.
Healthy Comfort Food that Soothes Stress
With its unctuous silkiness and rich enticing aroma, coconut oil may be the ultimate ‘neuron’ comfort food. Its high content of quality fats nourish a sizzled nervous system, helping you meet daily challenges with less struggle. Your neurons are coated in a fatty layer called the myelin sheath, which guides nerve impulses and insulates the neuron from hyperactivity. When his fatty layer is dried out or deficient, your nerves will be easily agitated and anxious.
As it relaxes your nerves, you’ll also find this breakfast a soothing balm for intense emotions. Hot emotions such as anger, impatience, and frustration are considered the result of a stressed liver in Ayurveda and Chinese medicine. Moistened with fats and pleased by the sweet, comforting aromas of coconut and oats, your intense emotions are diffused before they arise, keeping you grounded, calm and collected throughout the day.
On the Mend
This dish is excellent for someone who feels depleted by the hustle & bustle of the work week, or even late nights of insomnia. If you are fatigued, or have had a rough day emotionally, this recipe is a cushion for your nerves and is restorative to your liver. Coconut oil contains healthy fats that are quickly and easily absorbed, digested, and metabolized by your body, making them ideal for nourishing the elderly, anyone with a delicate constitution or who feels fragile, and those recovering from a recent illness.
A bowl of oatmeal in the morning can help you stay regular while you are rebuilding your strength after an illness. Oatmeal is easy to digest and contains ample amounts of soluble and insoluble fiber to keep your bowels healthy. This is a comfort food that feels good on the way in, keeps you satisfied along the way, and feels good on the way out. Altogether it gives you a satisfaction that is ‘marrow deep’.
Build Stamina, Feel Warm
Hearty oats, sesame, and coconut build strength and stamina – and who doesn’t want to `feel their oats?’ Sesame restores your vigor and vitality on a chilly autumn morning. Its naturally warming and stamina building properties stick to your ribs and keep you feeling toasty. For those of you who are sensitive to cold, the addition of sesame seeds will warm you from your core.
While most nourishing foods depress metabolism, coconut is unusual in its ability to support the thyroid and improve metabolism. Dropping temperatures and unpredictable weather in the fall amplify worries and deplete the adrenals, which are bound to take a hard hit during stressful situations. Sesame seeds revive your sense of stability and stamina. Black sesame seeds in particular nourish exhausted, overworked adrenals.
