Are you a coconut lover? If so, this morning bowl of Coconut Bomb Overnight Oatmeal might be your perfect bowl of morning oats!

Growing up, I hated coconut with a passion. My mom loved it and I just couldn’t understand her obsession with it. She lived in Hawaii for a time, and coconut was a big deal there. She learned to appreciate it in all it’s forms.

The coconut tree (Cocos nucifera), known as “niu” in Hawaii, was originally introduced to the islands by the original Polynesian settlers. Although the island chain lies near the northern boundaries of the main coconut-growing regions of the world, coconut trees thrive in the warm, balmy climate of Hawaii. Coconuts were an important resource for ancient Hawaiians, providing food, liquid and building materials. Coconut fiber was used to lash the warrior’s koa wood canoes and the shells were used as the base of the shark skin-covered piniu, or Hawaiian knee drum. Source.

As for me, I didn’t come to enjoy the flavor of coconut until I tasted fresh coconut for the first time. Something about that flipped a switch in me, and I’ve enjoyed the flavor ever since. These days, I enjoy coconut oil, coconut milk and coconut flakes on a fairly regular basis.
