Not your Grandma’s Oatmeal

I absolutely love my local Açaí -Oatmeal bowl shop here in Winter Park, but I don’t love paying $12.00 for a bowl of oatmeal when the same thing at home would only cost about $3.00. And don’t get me started on trying to find a parking spot. We are all SO busy with our families, work, commitments and lives that it seems quicker to run into a cafe, grab breakfast to go and eat in the car or at your desk. But wouldn’t it be SO much better to enjoy a homemade breakfast with your own coffee and have a bit more moolah at the end of the month? For the time it takes you to drive to your local açaí shop or barista, you could be enjoying a healthy, homemade breakfast for pennies. Oatmeal is loaded with fiber keeping you full until lunch. I bet even your kids will start to eat oatmeal- just takes a sharp knife and a bit of artistic love to share with your family. Come on and let’s up our oatmeal game.


  • 1 Cup Old Fashioned Oats

  • 1 3/4 cup water

  • 1 banana sliced

  • 10-14 raspberries

  • 2 tsp bee pollen

  • 2 tsp chia seeds

  • 2 tsp raw honey or more to drizzle

  • splash of unsweetened almond milk- optional

Homemade chunky applesauce, nuts and a dollop of yogurt are a perfect Fall Breakfast

You can change this recipe and use whatever fruit is in season- peaches, mango, any type of berries. I especially love homemade chunky applesauce in the Fall. See my recipe HERE. Peaches love a dash of fresh nutmeg, blueberries and cinnamon always work well together. Just use some artistic flair and your family will love breakfast in the morning.

Fresh berries from our Montana garden and local peaches are a perfect topping for oatmeal


  • In a saucepan, heat water to boiling, add uncooked oats. Stir for five minutes on low or until oats are creamy and water is absorbed.
  • Transfer cooked oats to two bowls. Spoon Greek yogurt over oats and, if desired, a splash of almond milk. Then add in a semi circle the sliced banana, raspberries, and nuts in the center. Sprinkle bee pollen & chia seeds between fruit and nuts . Drizzle honey or agave over oats to taste.
