Units Scale
  • 1 cup oat groats
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp goji berries, dried
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened plant-based milk for topping
  • 1 tsp shredded unsweetened coconut flakes (optional)


Rinse and drain oat groats in a fine mesh strainer.

Put rinsed oat groats into a medium pot with water. Bring to a gentle boil. Then reduce heat to low and simmer with the lid on. Cook for 18 to 20 minutes.

Carefully strain cooked oat groats in fine mesh colander, and return to the pot.

Stir in ground cinnamon, and then goji berries.

Carefully fold in blueberries. Note: If you're using frozen blueberries that have not yet thawed, you may need to turn the heat on low and put the lid on to warm the blueberries.

Portion out oat groats with berries and add sliced bananas, chia seeds, and unsweetened shredded coconut flakes, if using.

Drizzle unsweetened plant-based milk and enjoy!

Store leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
