by: claire cary

Sick of boring bowls of oatmeal? Me too! This guide on how to make oatmeal shows you step by step how to make the perfect bowl and customize it to your own needs.

Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Total: 15 mins


  • 1 cup dry old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt
  • Chopped nuts banana, brown sugar, yogurt and/or cinnamon for topping


  • Add all ingredients to a pot and bring to a low boil. 
  • Reduce heat to low and let simmer until thick, stirring occasionally. This will take about 5-10 minutes. 
  • Once it has reached your desired consistency, remove from heat and add any toppings of your choice.
  • I like doing a maple brown sugar style oatmeal, so I add a sprinkle of brown sugar, cinnamon, chopped nuts and banana. 


You may also use all water or all almond milk as your liquid, just be sure to use a total of 2 cups of liquid. I like using half and half to give a creamy consistency, but either one works!
Once prepared, this oatmeal will keep in the fridge for about 3 days. To reheat, add to a pan with a splash of non-dairy milk and let warm over medium heat. 
As written, this recipe isn't super sweet, so feel free to adjust the sweetness as desired!
