This oatmeal is mmmm good and can last one person all week when made ahead. Try topped with honey, maple syrup, fruit jam, or preserves, or a 1/4 cup of warm milk. Serve immediately or make ahead and refrigerate.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Add oats, flaxseed meal, and chia seeds, whisking well after each addition to prevent clumps. Add goji berries, raisins, cranberries, brown sugar, pumpkin seeds, and cinnamon. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until oatmeal reaches desired consistency, 40 to 45 minutes.


Cook's Notes:

Berry alternatives: mulberries, golden berries, strawberries, blueberries, diced apples.

Nut & seed alternatives: sliced almonds, pistachios, sunflower seeds, chopped walnuts, chopped pecans. I like to include 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds for a little extra crunch.

Overall this was good. I liked the combo of fruits making it not need too much sugar. I used a combo of frozen blueberries and diced apples in place of the goji berries. I used quick cook steel cut oats so I cut back on the water a bit and it only took 20 minutes to cook. I wasn't a big fan of the chia seeds in this; it made it a little too slimy for me. I think I'll add some walnuts to my next bowl to give it some crunch. Read More
