Oatmeal is a classic breakfast item: it’s simple, it’s filling, and it’s versatile. With just a handful of ingredients, you can put a quick meal together within minutes, which can be especially helpful when you’re on-the-go and need something in a jiffy. Oatmeal is a very customizable and forgiving recipe, so you can try many different topping combinations. Plus, oatmeal has a low glycemic index, meaning that although it’s primarily carbs, it digests more slowly than your average bagel or muffin and keeps you satisfied longer.
I’ve previously made two versions of overnight oats (apple pie and berry), but I wanted to share this version for a warm breakfast option: cooked in water and topped with some of my favorite add-ons (blueberries, dollop of Greek yogurt, cinnamon… yum!). There are different ways to prepare it- stovetop vs microwave- but I personally lean to the stovetop version. If I’m in a rush for the door, I add a splash of almond milk to my bowl to cool it down. Life hack! Check out how I make my super easy oatmeal below.
