Rise and Shine: My Everyday 10-Minutes Warm Oatmeal Recipe

Prep time: 10 minutes

Warm breakfasts hold a special place in my heart for several reasons. The warmth radiating from a bowl of oatmeal, a plate of warm healthy pancakes, or a mug of herbal tea not only satisfies my taste buds but also creates a sense of internal warmth and nourishment which is important especially in fall and winter.

From a nutritional standpoint, warm breakfasts feature whole, nourishing ingredients. Whether it's a bowl of porridge or a vegetable-filled omelet, these breakfasts provide a wholesome foundation for the whole day, supplying sustaining energy and nutrients for your body.

In essence, warm breakfasts align with the rhythm of the day, providing a gentle and grounding start. In colder seasons, they offer a comforting respite from chilly mornings, helping me face the day with renewed energy. The act of preparing and enjoying a warm breakfast becomes a form of self-care, a mindful moment that sets a positive tone for the hours ahead.

This warm oatmeal is one of my go to morning recipes, the base is usually the same but I like to play with the topings mainly according to what I have available in the house and the season.

Oats - I like to mix small grounded flakes with whole oat flakes for different texture. If you use only grounded oats sometime its too thick, and only whole oat flakes often miss creaminess.

Water - You know, one quirky thing I've noticed is people often add oat milk into their oatmeal. I mean, oats are already full of oat "milk" – just pour in some hot water, let it sit for a few minutes, and voila! The oats work their creamy magic, turning that water into a milk-like creamy goodness. It's like oats doing a little alchemy in your breakfast bowl.

Fruits - I always recommend not eating cold fruits from a fridge and especially not in the morning and in winter, instead steam them or simmer them for few minutes on a pan with some cinnamon. They will be softer and easier to digest=less bloating + your body will more easily absorb all nutritions.

Topings - use whatever your have in your house at the moment, there are no rules, just make it yummy! I like to add some crunchy granola, my favourite is my Homemade buckwheat granola, some extra nuts and seeds and of course some nut butter of your choice, I use usually natural peanut butter.

Vegan Warm Oatmeal Recipe:


for one portion:

  • 1/2 cup - Oats

  • 3/4 cup - Hot water

  • 1 - Fruit of your choice - apple/pear/banana/berries etc.

  1. Make the base: Create the base by combining oats, cinnamon, brown sugar, vegan protein or cocoa powder if using and hot water in a bowl. Mix well and let it sit for a few minutes. If the base is too thick, add more hot water.

  3. Enjoy: Once ready, add the fruits on top of your oat base and sprinkle with granola, peanut butter and other favorite toppings. Enjoy this delicious and nutritious breakfast!
