Notes on Food // Coconut Cacao Muesli

Putting this on the menu for this week. Coconut cacao muesli by Heidi Swanson on Quitokeeto.
1 14-ounce can full-fat coconut milk
1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt 
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
1/2 plump vanilla bean pod, sliced lengthwise
1 3/4 cups raw rolled oats (not instant oats)
1/4 cup cacao nibs 
1/4 cup pepitas, toasted 
2 tablespoons shaved piloncillo, plus more to taste
to serve: chopped dates, sliced fresh figs
In a small pot over medium heat, combine the coconut milk, salt, and cinnamon. Run a knife along the vanilla bean segment, to separate the paste - include the paste and pod in the pot as well. Bring just to simmer, turn off the heat, and allow the mixture to steep for at least ten minutes. In a separate medium size bowl, combine the oats, cocoa nibs, pepitas, and the grated piloncillo. Pour the warm coconut nut milk over the oat mixture, then stir to combine. Allow to sit 5-10 minutes. Serve with more grated or shaved piloncillo if you like, and fresh figs, and dates. 
Serves 4.
