  • Author: Tessa

  • Yield: 1 bowl 1x


Get into the habit of making your own fruit oatmeal for breakfast, at least on the weekends. It’s quick, fresh, and can be customized with your favorite healthy fruits, nuts, and power foods. The recipe multiplies easily to serve the whole family.




  • 1/2 C old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 C water
  • 1/2 C almond milk, other plant milk, or more water
  • Pinch of sea salt

Toppings (pick your favorites)

  • Pure maple syrup
  • Chopped fresh fruit: berries, banana, apple
  • Chopped walnuts or cashews (optional: toasted – see notes)
  • Hemp seeds or ground flaxseed
  • Ground cinnamon


  1. In a small saucepan, combine oatmeal, salt, and liquid and stir. Bring to a gentle boil over medium high, then reduce heat to a simmer for 3 to 5 minutes. Stir occasionally until oatmeal is thickened to desired consistency.
  2. Serve in a bowl with your favorite toppings.


To toast cashews, walnuts, or other medium to large raw nuts, preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Spread nuts in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake 5 to 10 minutes, stirring and checking once. Nuts are done when they turn slightly darker and smell nice and toasty! Transfer immediately to a dry dish towel or paper towel to cool.
