Print Recipe


  • microwave oven
  • 2-cup microwavable glass measuring cup


  • 1 cup water
  • cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 Tablespoon flax meal
  • 1 Tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon pecans finely chopped or ground
  • 1 Tablespoon raisins
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 pinch salt
  • optional toppings of choice see notes


  • Measure out one cup of water into a microwavable 2-cup measuring cup or something similar. Do not use a shallow bowl.
  • Add the oats, ground flaxseed/meal, hemp seeds, chopped nuts, raisins, vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Give it a quick stir.
  • Place in a microwave oven and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Remove for the microwave and spoon into a bowl. Add toppings of choice. (See notes below.)


Old fashioned oats are also called rolled oats but are NOT quick oats. 
Substitute chopped walnuts or nut of choice for the chopped pecans.
Leave out the hemp seeds if you choose not to eat them.
Optional and not included in the nutrition information. Top with:
  • fresh/frozen fruit,
  • sweetener of choice (I use a little drizzle of maple syrup
  • a dollop of plant-milk (I used oat milk)
  • seeds such as chia, pumpkin, or sunflower
  • a swirl of melted nut butter
  • spoonful of apple, pumpkin, or peach butter
