Power Oatmeal

Laura Norris
Cook Time 10 mins
Servings 1


  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned or rolled oats
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter or almond butter
  • 1 cup fruit berries, sliced banana, etc.
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of ginger
  • Generous pinch of cinnamon


  • Combine the oats and water in a pot on the stove and turn on heat to medium high. Bring water to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
  • Once the water is boiling and the oats start absorbing liquid, reduce the temperature to low. Let cook until water is absorbed.
  • Crack the egg into the oatmeal and quickly whisk into the oats, using a spatula. Stir continually for approximately 30-60 seconds, or until the egg is fully cooked (you should not see any raw egg left in the oats). The spatula and continual whisking, along with a low temperature, are key to avoiding any clumps of scrambled egg.
  • Season the oatmeal with a pinch of salt, a pinch of ginger, and a generous pinch of cinnamon.
  • Turn off the stove and serve the oatmeal in a bowl. Top with peanut butter (or nut butter of choice) and fruit.
  • Serve immediately.
