Cooked the night before and allowed to chill, this wholesome pudding makes an easy breakfast (or dessert!). You can use store-bought almond milk or make your own.


  • ½ 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.
