This is a wonderful way to use up the rhubarb in your garden without going to the trouble of making pie. It is more of a savory oatmeal instead of sweet. My children love this for breakfast and get excited when I make it!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine water, salt, and rhubarb in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Add oats and cinnamon. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in flaxseed meal, honey, coconut oil, and chia seeds.


Cook's Notes:

You don't want all of the water absorbed when cooking the oatmeal. The flax and chia seeds will absorb a little when they are added at the end.

2 tablespoons maple syrup could also be used in place of the honey. Brown sugar will also work.

This definitely is a fun new way to use up rhubarb! The kids and I really enjoyed it! I did not have flax or chia seeds so I left that part out. I am sure that would have made it healthier. It tasted great though! When leaving out the seeds it is probably a good idea to reduce the water a little bit unless you like soupy oatmeal. This is definitely a SOUR oatmeal and if made like the recipe says more on the savory side like the description says. My kids and I like sour things so we enjoyed that sour rhubarb flavor. However at first it was a little too sour and not enough sweet for our tastes so I added double the honey. Although still very sour that made it quite enjoyable. I am sure we will be making it again during rhubarb season. Read More
