Of course, the flavor is the main reason why Josh and I love this recipe so much, but it’s also:

How to Make Sweet Berry Oatmeal

This easy sweet berry oatmeal comes together in under ten minutes for a quick breakfast option you can throw together even when you have limited time in the morning.

And I love that it doesn’t dirty up a bunch of dishes! Since you cook it in the bowl, you don’t have to worry about washing a messy pot afterward. I don’t know about you, but that’s right up my alley!

So here’s how you make the best ever berry oatmeal:

Ingredients

  • ½ cup old fashioned rolled oats (not the quick cook kind)
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 2 tsp. maple syrup (more to taste)
  • 1 tsp. flaxseed meal
  • 1 tsp. hulled hemp seeds
  • 1 tsp. chia seeds
  • Blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • Strawberries, fresh or frozen

Instructions

1. Add the water to a kettle or pot and bring to a boil.

2. Place the oats in a heat-proof bowl.

3. Pour the boiling water over the oats and stir slightly until all the oats are moistened. Place a lid or plate over the bowl and let stand 5 minutes.

4. Remove the lid/plate and stir in the maple syrup and flax meal, then top with chia seeds, hemp seeds, and berries.

Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

This recipe makes one serving.

You can use old fashioned rolled oats (not the quick cook kind) or quick cook steel cut oats. Sometimes I even use a mix of the two for a heartier texture!

You can use fresh or frozen berries, depending on what time of year you make this recipe. I like to use fresh berries when berries are in season, but the recipe works just fine with frozen berries too.

Any combination of berries will work for this recipe. I usually use strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries.
