anything goes oatmeal.

I call this recipe "anything goes oatmeal" because I believe you can add almost anything to this simple oatmeal recipe and it will probably turn out delicious. This recipe makes an incredible breakfast, lunch (don't judge), snack, or dessert. 


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup milk of choice (you'll probably want more to add in at the end)
  • 1/4 tsp salt (I left out)
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Sweetener to taste (I left out because the baking chips were sweet enough) 
  • Add-ins of your choice**
    • Baking chips- 
      • chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, etc. etc.
    • Walnuts, peanuts, almonds, etc.
    • Peanut Butter
    • Cinnamon
    • Brown sugar
    • Mashed or chopped banana

  1. Combine 1/2 cup oats with some milk. Cook for 1 minute.
  2. Add salt (if desired) and your add-ins. (Tip: if adding the banana, add this ingredient right before consuming.)
  3. Cook for intervals until the consistency is how you like it. I usually do 30 second intervals or so and add milk as needed. When you are getting close to your last interval of cooking, add in the vanilla. 
  4. You can now stir in your mashed or chopped banana & sweetener.
  5. Enjoy!!
My favorite combos** 
  • chocolate chips, peanut butter, & chopped banana. 
  • white chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, & peanut butter.

  1. can you add cheese? or green beans? haha jk. try using maple syrup for a sweetener...that is delish! also sometimes i add an egg--that's really good (no joke), just add it at the end and stir really fast to break it up. adds extra protein :)

    1. Mmm sounds yummy! I'm kinda skeptical about the egg but I'll give it a shot :)


Thanks for visiting... I'd love to hear from you!
