Pick Up Limes introduced me to oatmeals a few years ago. I never thought eating oats could be this fun. Since then I often make oatmeal for breakfast. What I love about this oatmeal recipe is that it has no added sugar because it’s naturally sweetened with dates and fruits.

A bowl of this oatmeal will give you lots of energy and will keep you full for a couple of hours. This hearty and delicious breakfast will soon become one of your favorites too!

How to Make This Delicious Oatmeal

  • Use rolled oats. They have a short cooking time, around 5 minutes, and turn out creamy.
  • Stick to the ratio – ½ cup of oats to 1 cup of milk. If you use less milk, it may not fully cook all the oats. If you use more milk, it may end up looking too mushy.
  • Top up with seasonal fruits, nut butter, granola, and seeds for best results.
