Creamy Oatmeal

Creamy oats
Creamy quick oats topped with fresh fruit, nuts, coconut flakes, maple syrup and cinnamon. A nourishing, warming start to the day.


  • 3/4 cup quick oats
  • 1.5 cups milk (see note 1)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon


  • 1 tbsp milk (see note 1)
  • 1/2 banana sliced
  • 3 strawberries sliced
  • 1 tbsp nuts (walnuts used)
  • 1 tbsp coconut flakes
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  1. Combine oats ingredients in a small saucepan and cook on a medium heat, stirring continually until at 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 including plant based. 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.
