Breakfast Oatmeal (Quick, but Not Instant)


One of our favorite quick and go-to meals for breakfast is oatmeal. Here is how we make it!


SWEET OATMEAL -- serves 4-6 depending on serving size.


1.Using a large pot, heat all of these ingredients on high until they start to boil.

  • 2 cups whole, rolled oats

  • 2 cups milk (I recommend almond or dairy--your preference or personal needs)

  • 1 cup water

  • 2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/4 cup honey (I actually don't measure, so this is a guess--you can adapt!)


2. Turn the heat down to medium and stir occasionally.


3. After about 5 minutes, turn the heat to low and add 3 eggs

(this is optional, but I add eggs to the oatmeal because it is extra fat and protein which is good for a well-rounded meal and will help with satiation).


4. Serve hot, once the eggs are cooked (maybe 2 minutes).


5. Add various toppings:

chia seeds (I make everyone have these--great benefit)

peanut butter

berries (fresh or frozen)

add more milk


***You have so many options--can add peaches or other fruits, can make it more nutty with favorite chopped nuts, maple syrup or more honey, grated coconut, cacao nibs, raisins or craisins, etc. Don't feel stuck with our recipe and toppings. We even change it up occassionally. These are our go-to toppings that we always have on hand. Make it with your favorite toppings and enjoy!



HERE IS A SINGLE SERVING SIZE:

***I grew up eating salty, buttery oatmeal, and I still prefer that over sweet oatmeal.  I also like the crunchy texture of steel cut oats.  I know both might be weird or strange to some--you can give my salty oatmeal a try or you can make it sweet by replacing the water with milk, the salt with cinnamon, the butter with honey, and you will have the same sweet oatmeal recipe as above, but a single serving if it's just for you!  Enjoy!  




SALTY OATMEAL -- single serving


1.Using a small pot, heat all of these ingredients on high until they start to boil.

  • 1/4 cup whole, steel cut oats (I love the crunchy texture--you can do rolled oats)

  • 1/2 cup water

  • pinch salt

  • a little bit of butter

2. Turn the heat down to medium and stir occasionally.


3. After about 3-5 minutes, turn the heat to low and add 1 egg

(this is optional, but I add eggs to the oatmeal because it is extra fat and protein which is good for a well-rounded meal and will help with satiation).


4. Serve hot, once the egg is cooked (maybe 1 minute).

5. I also usually add a little butter, salt, and pepper.
