HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED:
For the oatmeal:

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (use gluten-free oats if needed)
2 cups water (or almond milk or other plant-based milk of your choice)
Pinch of salt

For the toppings:

½ cup almond milk (or other plant-based milk)
¼ cup of almond butter or sunflower butter
1 orange, peeled and sliced
¼ cup of pomegranate seeds
1/5 cup of pumpkin seeds
¼ cup of fresh or frozen berries (optional)
1 tablespoon of nuts (walnuts, almonds, cashews) (optional)
1-2 tablespoon maple syrup or agave nectar (optional)
using a knife to peel an orange

Of course, you can use any toppings or add-ins you like, such as:

Chia seeds (these are really great in oatmeal!!)
Flax seeds (the ground kind is better nutrition-wise!)
Hemp seeds
Freeze-dried fruit
Sliced bananas, or any other fruit
Pink pitaya powder
Purple sweet potato powder

HERE’S WHAT YOU DO:
Step 1: In a medium saucepan, combine the oats, water (or milk), and a pinch of salt.

Bring to a boil over medium heat and stir. Lower the heat and let it simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. The oatmeal will be soft and thick, and will have a creamy consistency.

Step 2: Add the almond butter and almond milk, stirring until incorporated. Taste it (carefully! it’s hot!) and see if it needs sweetener.

Step 3: Divide between two bowls, then top with pomegranate seeds, pumpkin seeds, nuts, fresh or frozen berries, or add your own favorite toppings. Drizzle with additional maple syrup, if desired.
