Honey nut oatmeal

Oatmeal is one of my favourite breakfasts. It's warm, healthy, and there are so many yummy ways to have it that it never gets boring. My youngest son loves his oatmeal too, and this recipe makes the perfect amount to feed both our tummies at the start of our day.

The honey in this oatmeal lends just the right amount of sweetness, and the nuts offer protein which is something I try to fit into our first meal of the day. For me, the best part about oatmeal for breakfast is how quick it is. This bowl of hot yumminess took just a few minutes to make!

Here's how I made it:

1 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped nuts (I like a mix of almonds and walnuts)
1 tbsp honey

I brought the water to a boil in a small saucepan. Then I added the oats and cinnamon and lowered the heat to low, cooking and stirring for just two or three minutes. To finish, I transferred the oatmeal to a bowl and topped it with the nuts and drizzled on the honey. That's it!

Do you make oatmeal for breakfast? Do your kids like it? What do you like to put in your oatmeal?


  1. Oh yum! This looks great, almost like a cake. I love oatmeal, but usually eat it in baked things. I love adding cinnamon and honey to it, so I know I'll love this! Your other oatmeal recipes sound amazing as well!

  2. Love this! I am a huge oatmeal fan...I have it 5/7 days a week. I usually have mine your banana coconut style or with raisins, cinnamon and brown sugar. Mmm...

  3. My family eats oatmeal all the time. Usually we have it with maple syrup, toasted almonds and milk. Sometimes we add coconut while cooking and/or blueberries after it's cooked. I also love quinoa cooked with blueberries, milk and cinnamon but my family just can't get used to the texture.
