Old-Fashioned Oatmeal With Berries and Nuts

14 02 2013

I’ve never been a huge fan of breakfast, normally my coffee was filling enough! But I’ve come to realize just how important breakfast is and now I enjoy it. This oatmeal is a quick and healthy breakfast that keeps me full until my mid-morning snack. Using old-fashioned oats may not be as quick as instant oatmeal, but it’s a whole lot better for you!

The portion size I originally followed was too much for me. I cut it in half, so the below might be perfect for you, or not enough. If it’s not enough, just double the recipe.

Old Fashion Oatmeal With Berries and Nuts

Old Fashioned Oatmeal With Berries and Nuts

The following serves 1:

  • 1/2 cup Vanilla flavored Almond milk (or whatever kind of milk you prefer)
  • Cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup dried old-fashioned oats
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries, chopped
  • Pecan or walnut pieces, about 1 Tbsp or so

Heat milk in a small saucepan over low heat until warm. Add a good pinch of cinnamon (adjust more or less depending on your taste) and stir well. Next, add the dried oats and stir. Cook over low heat, stirring often, until thick, about 3 minutes or so.

Remove from heat and mix in a good handful of blueberries and chopped strawberries (or however much fruit you like, I generally use a small palmful of blueberries and about 3 strawberries). Top with nuts.
