This is my GO TO oatmeal guys. If I am making oatmeal- THIS is what I am throwing together. The best part? There is a quick way to make it and a slow and easy way to make it. As with all oatmeal really. Basically what I am getting at is that you can microwave it or cook it on the stove. This recipe also can be used to make overnight oats with a few adjustments and putting it into a mason jar or container. If you’d like a dedicated post to making overnight oats I can definitely get that going!
I am someone who likes to try to sneak some healthy things into my oatmeal (or into whatever I can really…) so this recipe features chia seeds and ground flax seeds. Do you need these things to make the oatmeal? No. Are they an easy and flavourless way to add some fibre to your breakfast? Absolutely.
I will also mention that the type of liquid you use in this recipe is entirely up to you. I personally like to use a mix of lactose free milk and water. Feel free to use regular milk, oat milk, almond milk whatever- just please don’t use orange juice. I know its a breakfast liquid but it is a no go.
