While you certainly could make this over the stove top, I always make it in the microwave to avoid dirtying a pan. Then, I remove half for my youngest and the oldest eats out of the bigger bowl.

We often add in frozen blueberries to cool down the oatmeal before serving but fresh berries or no berries is fine too. Chopped walnuts add great texture and more healthy fats but you’ll get those from the flax seed meal as well.

  1. Yummy, Liz! Made it with coconut milk and topped it with some walnuts and blueberries. But there is no way I can eat the whole bowl if the 1 serving meal. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hi Liz, I noticed the link to the flax seed meal ingredient takes one to Amazon.com for Bob’s Red Mill Organic Golden Flaxseed Meal. The only flax seed meal I have in my pantry is Bob’s Red Mill Whole Ground Flaxseed Meal. Will this recipe work with Whole Ground flax seed meal? TIA

  3. I just buyed flax seed and i was curious on ways to use and since im a big fan of oats and milk+bananas i use all these into one big bowl.I have added little agave nectar on top of all.Thanks.

  4. Love the sweetness that the banana adds! I had never tried adding that before cooking my oatmeal .Thanks, Liz, this was quick, easy and tasty!
