Packaged instant oatmeal can have a surprising amount of sodium in those little individual envelopes!  We were recently staying at a hotel with continental breakfast, and thought oatmeal would be a good low sodium option – turns out it was much higher that we expected.

Making your own ‘instant’ oatmeal at home with quick oats, your favorite milk, fruit, and some pantry staple spices like brown sugar and cinnamon is a great option for breakfast. You can add any fruit that is in season, and enjoy a tasty, cozy breakfast in minutes. Skip the sodium and preservatives, and make your own oatmeal at home!

What’s In This No Salt Added Oatmeal Recipe?

I get all the fresh produce for my recipes from my garden and from Misfits Market – they sell all organic produce at a super discounted price, and it’s purchased direct from the farmers. We get Misfit Market boxes every month and love picking out our favorite seasonal produce for delivery.  You can get $10 off your first $30 box by clicking here! 

If you think organic produce is too expensive… think again, and give Misfits Market a look!

  • Quick Oats – I like to use quick oats, which only take a few minutes to cook up, making this recipe super weekday-friendly.
  • Water or Almond Milk – plain and unsweetened!  Homemade almond milk (blending almonds and water) has 0mg of sodium, making it my favorite choice!
  • Cinnamon: which gives this dish a subtle spice-y flavor!  I love to add in a pinch for extra warmth and depth of flavor.
  • Brown Sugar – for a little added sweetness.
  • Walnuts: because I love adding heart-healthy and brain-healthy ingredients to my foods when I can. I stocked up a few bags of these walnuts which are super cheap and a great value for the quality.
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Fruit for topping – I added fresh strawberries and some unsweetened shredded coconut for a little extra freshness and flavor!
