  • 1 1/3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (use gluten-free rolled oats for a gluten-free meal)
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts of your choice, preferably toasted (I prefer slivered almonds, pecans or cashews)
  • 1/4 cup dried fruit of your choice (raisins, dried cherries, dried cranberries, dates, etc)
  • 2 tablespoons flax or shelled sunflower seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • In a medium sized bowl, combine the oats, nuts, fruit, seeds, and cinnamon. 
  • To serve: enjoy it "raw" with milk or yogurt, allow it to soak in liquid overnight for a softer texture, or cook it on the stovetop with milk (or water) for an oatmeal texture. 
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.
