Basic Oatmeal


I make a batch of these oats once a week and have it on hand for a few days. It's great to have in the fridge for busy school mornings and the kids love topping them with different berries and maple syrup. I love mixing up my toppings and make my bowl look really pretty!

What you'll need:

  • 1 cup Rolled Oats (not the “instant oats” variety)

  • 1 cup Water

  • 1 cup Milk (any type of milk will do)

  • 2 tsp Cinnamon

  • ¼ cup Maple Syrup

  • pinch of Saffron

  • Toppings of your choice  



Add oats and water to a pan, slowly bring to a simmer and let simmer for 1-2 minutes. Add milk and let oats cook through and soften for about 5-7 more minutes. Add cinnamon, maple syrup and saffron. Mix well and let cook for another minute or two.  (Makes 2-3 servings)

Top with any fresh fruit, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, nut butters, even dark chocolate!
