  3. Add chopped apple, shredded carrot, ground flax seeds and add extra 1/2 cup of plant milk if desired.
  4. Mix thoroughly and cook another 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  5. Serve and add toppings if desired – more cinnamon or other spices, more veggies or fruit, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, nut butter, apple sauce, date syrup, or maple syrup.


  • Add more plant milk to make the oatmeal creamier. Add more water or milk as needed to achieve your desired consistency.
