No ratings yet
This best ever oatmeal recipe is a perfect breakfast treat. Top it with any of your favorite fruits, seeds, or nut butters for a tasty meal.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Yield: 1 serving


  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup old fashioned rolled oats - I really like Bob's Red Mill.
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar light works too, but I prefer dark
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

My favorite toppings:

  • Roasted pecans
  • Blueberries
  • Peanut butter


  • In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add in the oats and salt, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the maple, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Continue to simmer for an additional 3-5 minutes until desired consistency is achieved.
  • Serve immediately, topped with your preferred toppings.
