The Best Oatmeal

Breakfast is without a doubt my absolute favorite meal of the day. Some days, I start the morning out rather fancy-like. (Full disclosure: This usually happens when I'm having a bad hair day... and scones are the only cure. obviously.) 

But most days? Oatmeal. Yeah. Really. It's uh-mazing. It's simple, healthy, and keeps me going for hours. You can make a big pot at the beginning of the week and keep it in the fridge for a quick meal. 

Can I give you a recipe for my favorite oatmeal? ....does oatmeal even count as a recipe??  

The Best Oatmeal
Adapted from McCann's 

1 cup steel cut oats
1 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
1/2 cup blueberries
cinnamon and brown sugar to taste

Into 4 cups of briskly boiling water sprinkle 1 cup of oatmeal, stirring well. When the porridge is smooth and beginning to thicken, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove oatmeal from heat and spoon into bowls. This recipe makes about 4 servings. Serve with toppings and enjoy!


  1. I am such a sucker for oatmeal and this looks delicious! Breakfast tomorrow!!!


  2. I love oatmeal and what you've done to yours has made me very hungry. This is a very nice recipe and it will be put to good use around here. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
