Oatmeal with Berry "Compote"

Updated: Nov 10, 2021



Yields: 1 serving


Oatmeal Ingredients:

1/2 cup of rolled oats

1/2 cup of water

1/2 cup of milk or water, plus more to taste*

1 ripe banana (fresh or frozen)

A couple of dashes of cinnamon 

Pinch of salt


Mixed Berry "compote" Ingredients:

3/4 cup of frozen mixed berries

Coconut sugar or maple syrup (optional)


Toppings:

Berry "compote"

Fresh berries

Nut butter or chopped walnuts/pecans

A drizzle of maple syrup (optional)


Directions:

1. Add all oatmeal ingredients to a pot and cook on high heat until it boils, then reduce to medium heat and cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring often. 

2. In a small saucepan add the frozen mixed berries and cook on medium-high heat for a few minutes. To make it a proper compote, add a little bit of sweetener to taste. 

3. Once everything is cooked, place in a bowl and top it with the compote and toppings of your choice, and enjoy! 


*Typically, when cooking oatmeal it is a 2:1 ratio between the liquid and oats, but because I tend to cook bananas with the oats I need to add more liquid (about 1/4 cup) for the oats to cook completely.
