I call this Real Microwave Oatmeal because when most people think of microwave oatmeal, they think about those prepackaged, overly processed and overly sweetened little packets. I’m happy to say you don’t have to resort to those little packets anymore!
I regularly make this recipe for breakfast at work. It’s super simple. And all you need is some rolled oats, water and your toppings of choice. My toppings of choice always includes fresh berries and nuts.
There are so many ways to dress up your oatmeal. On occasion I throw in some candied pecans or a few semi sweet chocolate chips. The possibilities are endless. I’d love to hear what toppings you like to have with your oatmeal in the comments below!

- Pour oats and water in a microwavable bowl. Heat on high for 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute and watching carefully to be sure the oats don’t boil over. If oats start to boil over, stop the microwave and wait for the oatmeal to settle back down in the bowl and continue to microwave for the remaining time.
- Garnish with fresh berries, pistachios and maple sugar or maple syrup. Stir and enjoy!
