  • Blender
  • Saucepan


Blueberry Vanilla Oatmeal

  • ¾ cup water or milk
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup blueberries, chopped in half
  • 1-2 tsp almond butter (or any nut butter or SunButter)
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract

Strawberry Banana Oatmeal

  • ¾ cup water or milk
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • 2 strawberries, chopped in small pieces
  • ¼ banana, sliced
  • 1-2 tsp peanut butter (or any nut butter or SunButter)

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal


  • Boil: Bring the water to a boil in a pot.
  • Add Oats: Add the oats and fruit (or pumpkin puree and chia seeds) to the water. Cook over medium-high for about 5 minutes, until the water has absorbed and oats are soft. Stirring the oats occasionally.
  • Remove from Heat: Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the rest of the ingredients (depending on what recipe you're making from above).
  • Serve: If the oats are too hot, make sure to let them cool before serving. Tip: sometimes I will place the oatmeal in the freezer for a couple minutes to speed up the cooling process. Feel free to add additional water or milk to thin the oats, if needed.


Thin if needed: Oatmeal can easily vary in texture and consistency with the amount of milk or water that is added to it. Feel free to add additional water, milk, formula, or breastmilk to the oatmeal after the cooking process to thin it.
