Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned or rolled oats (I love Bob's Red Mill)
  • 1/2 cup strawberries, washed & chopped (more or less as desired)
  • 2/3 cup water or milk
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar (honey, maple syrup or other sweetener would work too)
  • 1 tablespoon roughly chopped walnuts

Instructions

  • Combine oatmeal, strawberries, water or milk, chia seeds and cinnamon (if using) in a non-stick pot over medium-low heat.
  • Stir to combine then allow oats to begin to cook (you'll notice some bubbling start around the edges).  Once the bubbling begins, stir for 1-2 minutes and then lower heat & continue to stir until all the oats are gelatinous and cooked.
  • Remove from heat, top immediately with brown sugar and walnuts, then serve.
