Easy Breakfast Oats with Healthy Toppings Recipe


Rolled oats are transformed into a hearty, creamy, and ultra healthy breakfast option that's ready in just 10 minutes. And it can be made sweet or savoury!

How to make oats like a pro

Just remember this ratio 1:2. For every portion of oats, you need double the amount of liquid. For a single serving with 1/2 cup of oats, that means you’ll need 1 cup of liquid.

On The Stove

Whether you’re making a single portion or for the whole family, it’s easy to make perfect oatmeal on the stove. Here’s the steps:

  1. Boil water. In a small pot, bring the water or milk and salt to a boil over medium-high heat.
  2. Cook the oats. Stir in the oats then reduce the heat to medium-low. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes to let the liquid absorb, while stirring occasionally.
  3. Top and serve. Add toppings, a drizzle of milk if you’d like, and enjoy.

Add your Toppings

  • Apple Cinnamon: Add diced apples, chopped pecans, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and a drizzle of maple syrup.
  • Mango: Add diced mango for a summer themed bowl.
  • Banana Blueberry: Add sliced bananas, blueberries, a drizzle of almond butter, and a sprinkle of chia seeds.
  • Strawberries and Cream: Add diced strawberries, a dollop of yogurt, and a sprinkle of flaxseeds.
  • Chocolate Peanut Butter: Stir in cacao powder, then add a drizzle of peanut butter, and shredded coconut.
  • Coffee, Walnut & Dates: Replace some of the liquid with a little bit of brewed coffee as it’s cooking. Then top it off with chopped dates, toasted walnuts, and banana slices.

Top Tip

If your oats are dry just add a splash more water or milk, and stir it in.
