I feel like oatmeal is the most underrated of all the breakfast foods. It has a rep for being boring, but with the right toppings and preparation it’s easily one of my favorites.
This recipe is super easy so I feel kinda silly posting it but the slight variations on the normal preparation of oatmeal (ex. boiling the oats in almond milk and water rather than just water + the additions of certain spices & toppings) make this oatmeal 2.0 worth a recipe.
BEST FOR- breakfast, lunch, dinner – or anytime you want a quick, easy, hot snack!
MUSICAL PAIRING- “Hold on, We’re Going Home” Covered by ASTR
½ cup almond milk
¼ cup water
¼ cup quick cook steel cut oats
2 strawberries, cut into small pieces
5 almonds, finely chopped
1/3 a banana, cut into slivers then quartered
1 tsp chia seeds
a spoonful raw crunchy almond butter
a handful of blueberries
a drizzle of honey
a pinch of cinnamon
a pinch of nutmeg
- Bring the almond milk and water to a boil in a medium-sized pot (the oatmeal may bubble up so you want to make sure the pot is tall enough/has high enough sides).
- Add in the oatmeal, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Reduce heat, cover and cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring regularly (actually stir though because it’ll bubble over like crazy).
- While cooking, cut up banana, strawberry, and almonds.
- Take oatmeal off stove and put in bowl. Add desired toppings. I did (in order) almond butter, banana, strawberry, blueberry, almonds, chia seeds, then honey.
