This microwave oatmeal recipe is the perfect easy breakfast! Here’s how to make a healthy meal in minutes.


  • ½ cup Old Fashioned rolled oats
  • ¾ cup water
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Place the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl with tall sides. Microwave on High for 2 minutes (if there is still a good amount of liquid, cook 10 to 30 more seconds*). Stir and allow to stand for 1 to 2 minutes to allow the liquid to be absorbed. (For a double recipe, double the ingredients and microwave for 3 minutes 30 seconds.)
  2. Top with a drizzle of maple syrup, milk, and additional toppings as desired. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 5 days.


*Every microwave is different, so experiment to find the settings that work for you! With our microwave it’s perfect with a cook time of 2:20.
