What You'll Need

Best Practices for Ingredient Selection


Look for whole, rolled oats for a chewier texture. Ensure they are certified gluten-free if needed.


If using milk, opt for full-fat for a creamier texture. For a dairy-free option, oat milk or almond milk works well.


Choose fresh, organic berries that are bright in color and firm to the touch.


Go for raw, unfiltered honey for the best flavor and health benefits.

Chia Seeds

Opt for black chia seeds that are well-packaged to ensure they are free from contaminants.

Standard Oatmeal and Fresh Berries Recipe


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 cups water or milk
  • 1 cup mixed fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey

  1. If using rolled oats, optionally rinse them in a fine mesh sieve under cold water.
  2. In a medium-sized saucepan, bring 2 cups of water or milk to a gentle boil.
  3. Add the oats and reduce the heat to medium-low. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
  4. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the oats have absorbed most of the liquid and have a creamy texture.
  5. Remove from heat and transfer to serving bowls.
  6. Top with a generous amount of mixed fresh berries.
  7. Drizzle 1-2 tablespoons of honey over the berries.
  8. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of chia seeds for added texture and nutrients.
