Hiya guys! Hope you’re having a fab start to the week. I thought I’d spend mine sharing with you the breakfast I’ve been eating ever since the weather cooled. An easy oatmeal recipe that takes less than 10 minutes to throw together.
This easy oatmeal recipe is creamy and dreamy! It’s a simple blend of oats and chia, cooked in oat milk (or almond milk), and topped with banana, frozen raspberries, coconut flakes and carob chips.
I love this easy oatmeal recipe because it truly is so warm, wholesome and comforting. Waking up to a bowl of this breaky is the gentle ease into the work day that we all need. It makes you feel comforted and cared for, before you head into your busy day.
Plus, it gives you the sustenance you need to tackle your day head on. A bowl of oatmeal really does keep you full and satiated like nothing else. I like to pack mine with even more punch by adding a teaspoon of chia seeds. Not only does it add more protein and fibre, but it helps to bind the oats quicker together so you can be noshing in less than 10 minutes.
As for toppings – frozen berries are becoming a staple in my home as the weather cools. I love buying bags of frozen raspberries, blueberries and mixed berries in the colder months because it’s so expensive to buy them fresh during off-season. And frankly, the taste of winter berries just doesn’t compare to seasonal summer ones.
Save your dollar and opt-in for frozen berries instead. They are picked while in season and frozen immediately so they retain all their nutrition and taste. Frozen raspberries are delicious in this bowl. One quarter cup will melt instantly (also helpful in cooling it down a bit for quick eating) and adds a beautiful jaminess to the comforting bowl. Trust me you’ll love it!
Also, if you have it handy, i’d recommend adding some coconut shavings and carob chips for a bit of crunch. A few sprinkles goes a long way in adding a little more flavour and texture to each spoonful. I absolutely can’t live without at least one of these two toppings.
Feel Good Foodie also has some great recommendations for different types of oatmeal recipes and toppings.

hi hannah 🙂 does this recipe work as a make ahead and eaten cold?
Hi Ines! You can absolutely make this recipe in advance and eat cold, or reheat in the microwave. You might like to add a splash of almond milk to bring back to desired consistency as it will thicken when it chills. Alternatively, I encourage you to check out my recipe for overnight oats, which was created to make in advance and eat cold. 🙂
I’m so excited for porridge season! This looks delicious Hannah!
Oh jess you are SO sweet! Thanks so much for the love. And bring on porridge season!
