"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."

  • 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.
