2-Minute Oatmeal Bowl

Total: 2 minutes
Prep: 2 minutes
Yield: 1 serving

My husband and I eat oats just about every morning for breakfast and there are a variety of reasons we love doing so. They are a simple-to-prepare, low-fat, and delicious with the addition of cinnamon, ground flax seeds and fruit or a whole assortment of other toppings like, raisins, maple syrup, nuts, cocoa powder or coconut flakes.


  • ¾ rolled oats
  • 1 ground flax seed
  • ½ ground cinnamon
  • ¾ non-dairy milk
  • 1 sliced banana (see Tips)


  1. In a cereal bowl, mix together the oats, ground flax seed and cinnamon.
  2. Add the non-dairy milk and stir to combine.
  3. Add sliced banana and/or your toppings of choice.
  4. Eat immediately or let sit for a few moments to allow the oats to moisten.
