How to make oats coconut fufu

Oats coconut fufu served with green vegetable (Fluted pumpkin) soup

Oats coconut fufu is made with desiccated coconuts and some oats. The quantity of coconuts is more that the oats. The aim is to eat less carb and the addition of the quaker oats here is to help with binding as coconuts have no starch. This was totally enjoyed and very easy to make. I used quaker oats and in less than 10 minutes, my fufu was ready, smooth and fluffy.

Oats coconut fufu is very good for people looking to lose weight and for those who want to cut down on carbohydrates. Diabetics can also enjoy this meal as the sweetness of the coconut is no longer there, just the chaff. Coconut fufu served with vegetable soup like this is very nutritious and great for the whole family.
There is also guinea corn coconut fufu recipe on the blog.


  1. Boil a cup of water
  2. While water boils, measure in your quaker oats and leave to cook and soften for 5 minutes at least. You can stir while cooking.
  3. Add the dry desiccated coconuts (coconut chaff) and continue to stir. At this time, it might not be as hard as you deisre, continue to sprinkle in the coconuts and stir until you have what you want. These desiccated coconuts were also used for this coconut fufu posted earlier.
