Almond and Vanilla Hearty Oatmeal

Almond and Vanilla Hearty Oatmeal

Oatmeal is a great way to start the day, filled with fiber and iron. Sometimes it can be pretty bland and down-right BORING. This easy, fill-you-up recipe is full of flavor, texture and always a winner with my kids. I can feel good about getting them off to school with weekday staple.
If you have allergies you can use other forms of milk in place of the almond milk.


  • 3 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • Toppings
  • milk
  • marcona almonds
  • granola
  • mixed berries
  • pure maple syrup
  • pumpkin seeds


  1. In a medium sauce pot stir in almond milk, vanilla, cinnamon, coconut oil and salt. Bring to a simmer over medium/high heat.
  2. Pour in oats and stir. Cook at a simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Top each bowl with desired toppings. ( I like all of them on mine).
