I’ve been looking to incorporate more wholesome breakfast dishes into my diet lately, and thought it might be time to bring oatmeal back into my life. Back in the day, 3 or 4 years ago, I used to eat oatmeal every single morning for breakfast. Full of heart-healthy oats, and vitamin-rich fruit and berries, there’s no denying that oatmeal is an awesome way to start the day.

Ways to enjoy this recipe

  1. For kids: This is a great simple oatmeal recipe that pleases the kids too. Let them add the toppings. Consider serving topping options (chocolate chips, berries, sprinkles, banana slices, almond butter, brown sugar, nuts) separate and let them have some fun by choosing their favorites.
  2. For meal prep: If you’re looking to eat healthier and have stress-free mornings, consider pre-making several servings of oatmeal. After cooking and cooling, simply divide servings out into containers with lids and refrigerate up to one week. Wait to add toppings until you’re ready to eat.
  3. On the go: Once oatmeal is done cooking, transfer to a mason jar or other container with lid. I love using an almost empty peanut or almond butter jar. Take it to go for a great pre-workout snack to boost your energy.
