  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • Pinch of coarse salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 plum, pitted and chopped
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon


  1. Combine oats, 3/4 cup each almond milk and water, and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer until oats are tender, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl; let cool slightly. Stir in remaining 1/4 cup almond milk and 1 teaspoon maple syrup; chill overnight.

  2. Toss plum, remaining 1 teaspoon maple syrup, and cinnamon in a bowl. Let stand 5 minutes. Serve oatmeal topped with fruit and accumulated juices.

    We do not include water in the ingredients list. The amount of water is indicated in Step 1: "Combine oats, 3/4 cup each almond milk and water, [. . .]." Apologies for any confusion.

    FYI: The recipe instructions mention to add water along with the almond milk but does not include it in the list of items. I found a video on which says to add 3/4 cup water.

    I liked the idea of using almond milk instead of the usual water, and it did create a creamier consistency. No plums available, so I used fresh strawberries; this turned out really nice. It was very convenient to "grab and go" from the refrigerator in the morning. I would recommend this.
