Easy Power Oatmeal Recipe

Breakfast has always been the hardest meal of the day for me to eat. Luckily, I’ve been working dishes like the super easy power oatmeal recipe that I have for you today into my menu planning. If you’re like me and you simply aren’t that hungry in the morning, power oatmeal may be just what you need to get going. My mostly vegan hubs (he has the occasional cheeseburger, bwah) introduced me to it. And, I must say, I instantly fell in love!

Like most of the meals my honey makes for me, I gobbled up that power oatmeal gleefully. I love this particular oatmeal recipe because, one, it’s delicious, but also because you can throw it together so quickly. And, like most of you fellow busy mamas, time is something I always seem to be short on! I need fast and easy options for every meal of the day!

I tend to not want anything but coffee before like mid afternoon, but it’s obviously not the best idea to go sans food that long, especially if I have a busy day ahead. So, I need breakfast ideas that won’t require a ton of prep time. If I’m not hungry, I’m not apt to spend a ton of time in the kitchen preparing something. Eating nothing is simply not an option, especially since I’m switching my schedule around and working out in the late morning versus the late evening.

Remember that workout app we shared a couple years back? It has a new name, but a similar concept and I’m still fascinated by it. It makes finding an on-demand fitness class you’re excited about so easy, you’ll want to work out right away too! On that note, let’s talk about how we’re going to fuel you up before said workout!

  • 2 tbs tahini
  • splash of almond milk


  1. Cook the oatmeal per the container's instructions.
  2. Add cinnamon while cooking the oatmeal (or right after if making instant).

  4. Transfer oatmeal to bowl.
  5. Add the tahini, flax, chopped banana and berries.

Typically power oatmeal would include a protein packed grain like quinoa, but this recipe is plenty filling for me on most days. Feel free to add it if you feel like your oatmeal needs the extra boost! If I have a longer run planned, for instance, I might pop in that quinoa. But either way, this recipe is darn delish!
