Units Scale
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup almond milk (or any milk of choice)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 12 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • Toppings of choice (fruit, nut butter, granola, nuts, etc.)


  1. Combine all ingredients in a small pot.
  2. Transfer the pot to a stovetop and cook over medium-high heat. Frequently stir the oatmeal so it does not stick to the bottom of the pot. Cook until thick and creamy, about 7-8 minutes. The longer you cook, the thicker and creamier it will become.
  3. Transfer oatmeal to bowl(s). Add your favorite toppings, like fresh fruit, almond butter, granola, nuts, seeds, and more. Enjoy!


  • How to make them gluten-free: If you follow a strict gluten-free diet, check to make sure your oats are certified gluten-free.
  • Oatmeal mix-ins: Protein powder, mashed banana, cocoa/cacao powder, nut butter, nuts and seeds.
  • Oatmeal toppings: Fresh fruit, granola, nut butter, dark chocolate, nuts and seeds.
  • How to store leftovers: These almond butter oats are best enjoyed immediately after making them. I do not recommend storing leftovers. However, if needed, you can store them in a sealed container inside the refrigerator.
