Breakfast Oatmeal

Nothing beats a hot bowl of oatmeal in the morning. My grandpa always used to quip, “Feed a horse a bucket of oats and he’ll plow all day.” Oats are a great way to keep you satisfied all morning, regulate blood sugar levels, and are high in protein.

Below are several options for cooking on a stovetop or microwave, along with some topping suggestions.


1 cup water
1/2 cup One Degree Organics Quick Oats
Pinch of salt


Bring water and salt to a boil in small saucepan. Stir in quick oats, reduce heat to medium, cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 2 to 3 minutes.

Pour water into a microwave-safe dish, add a pinch of salt and quick oats.

Place in the microwave and cook on high for 2 minutes. Stir the oatmeal once or twice during cooking time.

Remove oatmeal from microwave and stir before serving.
