  • Medium-sized Pot
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Measuring Cups and Spoons


  • 3 cups Water
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 cups Oats gluten-free if possible
  • 2 tablespoons Ground Flaxseed
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Palm Sugar or brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Almond Butter or any nut butter
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon


  • Bring the water to a soft boil over medium-high heat using a small saucepan.
  • Stir in the oats and reduce heat to a simmer and continue to cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and cover with a lid to steam for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the ground flaxseed, sugar, almond butter, and cinnamon.


Sugar Options: you can use the sugar your prefer for this recipe and can even substitute in maple syrup or honey as well. I prefer to use coconut palm sugar when cooking healthier recipes due to its health benefits.
Making Basic Stovetop Oatmeal: to make an even simpler version of this oatmeal omit the sugar, almond butter, and cinnamon. You can then add any toppings you desire or create any of the oatmeal combinations from above.
