Creamy Oatmeal Recipe

Creamy Oatmeal

If you’re looking for a breakfast the whole family will love, look no further than this Creamy Oatmeal. Made in minutes on the stove, it is the perfect nourishing breakfast for busy mornings. Mix the oats with milk and heat before adding your favourite toppings – try fruit, nuts and a drizzle of maple syrup or honey.  

  • Total Time: 5 mins
  • Yield: 1 1x


Units Scale



  • 1 tbsp milk (see note 1)
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 3 strawberries sliced
  • 1 tbsp nuts of choice (walnuts used)
  • 1 tbsp coconut flakes
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon


  1. Combine the oats ingredients in a small saucepan and cook on medium heat, stirring continually until it reaches your desired consistency (2-3 minutes). The oats will continue to thicken as they cool.
  2. Serve in a bowl topped with additional milk, banana, strawberries, nuts, coconut flakes, maple syrup and cinnamon.


Note 1 – You can use any milk of your choice. For a less creamy consistency, use half water and half milk.

Additional topping suggestions – any fruit (such as sliced apples or raspberries), dried fruit (apricot or cranberries), cocoa nibs, brown sugar instead of maple syrup.

MAKE AHEAD AND LEFTOVERS – Best made and served immediately. Not suitable to refrigerate or freeze.
