  • First, add almond milk to a saucepan over low medium heat. Once lightly bubbling, add in oats, ground flaxseed and cinnamon.
  • Stir to combine. Cook for 7 to 8 minutes or until most of the liquid is soaked up. Stir occasionally to prevent burning. If too dry, add another spoonful of milk.
  • Remove saucepan from heat. Spoon oatmeal into bowls.
  • Finally, top with desired toppings such as blueberries, maple syrup and pecans.


  • Any milk works.
  • Rolled oats are a better option than quick oats.  They are slightly larger, softer and more easily absorb the milk.
  • If oatmeal becomes too dry while cooking, simply add a little more milk.
  • These oats can also be made into overnight oats.  Either make this recipe as written then refrigerate overnight, or mix together ingredients and place in airtight container overnight without cooking.
  • Refrigerate for up to 4 days.
  • Nutritional facts do not include toppings.
