Energizing Morning Oatmeal

We all know it can be hard to get the day started on chilly mornings. Here's one of my favorite warming and energizing breakfasts.

Energizing Morning Oatmeal

Serves 2


  • 2/3 cup rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 2/3 cup almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • optional- 1 tbs agave

Ingredients for toppings

  • pinch of salt
  • 1 banana, cut into slices
  • 2 tbs nut butter of your choice (e.g. peanut, almond, cashew)
  • 1.5 tbs dried coconut


Combine oats, water, almond milk and vanilla extract in a pot and bring to a boil.

Once pot is boiling, add raisins and turn down heat to simmer.

Keep an eye on the pot and stir occasionally until most of the liquid has been absorbed (about 10 minutes).

Stir in cinnamon, salt, and agave (if using). Transfer to bowls and top with banana slices, nut butter, and coconut.
