Perfect start for fall and winter mornings when our bodies crave a heartier meal.


  • 1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1 cup water
  • dash of salt
  • 1/4 cup milk of your choice
  • toppings and add-ins

Add-in Ideas:

  • seeds and/or chopped nuts
  • Fresh or dried fruit
  • honey or maple syrup to sweeten
  • Bee pollen
  • spices…cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, ginger


  1. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to simmer.
  2. Gently stir in the oats.   If the water starts to bubble over, reduce the heat further.
  3. Cook for about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Stir in the dash of salt, and scrap the oatmeal into a bowl.
  5. Float the milk across the top and add your favorite add-in and toppings.

NOTE:  Difference between Old fashioned oats and quick oats is that quick oats are grinded up a bit.  To do this I use a coffee grinder or food processor.  Place whole oats in grinder, lightly process, DO NOT over grind to powdered substance.
