Lucky Irish Oatmeal

Lucky Baked Irish Oatmeal
(serves 4)

I'm calling this one Lucky Irish Oatmeal because I literally threw some stuff together and got lucky when it turned out delicious...like, very, very delicious!

1/2 c. steel cut Irish oats
2c. milk
1/4 c. butter, melted
1/2 c. coconut
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 egg, beaten
1 small orange
1/4 walnuts, chopped
1/2 tsp. nutmeg

1. In a medium bowl, soak the oats in the milk and melted butter for 30 minutes.
2. While the oats are soaking, toast the coconut. Put the coconut on a metal baking sheet and put in a 400 degree oven. Open frequently to stir the coconut. Bake until coconut is golden brown. In my case this took about 5 minutes. Set aside.
3. Stir coconut, egg, brown sugar, juice and grated rind from orange, walnuts and nutmeg into oatmeal mixture.
4. Spray a loaf pan with baking spray. Pour mixture into pan.
5. Bake in a 375 degree oven for an hour. Serve warm!

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!
