Oatmeal doesn’t have to be mushy and bland. On the contrary, our honey almond skillet oatmeal has the texture of granola and the benefits of a fiber-filled, heart-healthy meal.

The preconceived notion that oatmeal from scratch takes so much longer to make is totally wrong! In fact, it only takes a few minutes to make this recipe. We know you’ll love the thick and chewy texture of real oats so much more than instant!

  • Uncover oats and stir until water completely evaporates. Transfer to two serving bowls, sprinkle with almonds and drizzle with honey.
