Kindapple Upside Down

March 8, 2011

I was envisioning an oatmeal with a good crunchy sugary topping, and this recipe didn’t quite do it, unfortunately.  It’s not bad – it’s just not my favorite.

But the most disappointing oatmeal is still more delicious than the perfect Froot Loop, is all I’m saying.

Caroline used to call pineapple “kindapple” back when she was a wee little thing.

So – with an arrow pointing you to Healthy Slow Cooking, from whence the basic oatmeal recipe springs – I give you, Kindapple Upside Down Oatmeal.  I have no clue how to improve this recipe to get it to do what I wanted it to, Darn it.  If anyone has suggestions, I’d love it.

What to Do

Spray a 4 quart crockpot with cooking spray. You will need:

  • 4 slices of dried pineapple slices
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 C Steel Cut Oats
  • 4 C So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk

Cover the bottom of the crockpot with the sliced pineapple.  Sprinkle the sugar over the top.  Put the oatmeal over the top evenly and add coconut milk.  Cook overnight on low.  Eat.

I was hoping that the sugar would melt kind of crunchily like it does on an upside down cake, but what it did was melt into a liquid, but it’s okay.  It was still good.  It just wasn’t what I wanted.  What surprised me is this, colon, this was, by far the least sweet of the oatmeals I’ve tried.  It was sweet enough, but had a nice pineappley tartness.
