  • ½ cup gluten free quick cooking oatmeal
  • ½-3/4 cup water
  • dash of salt
  • toppings


  • Put oatmeal in a bowl and add water and salt. Sometimes I use ¾ cup of water for a thicker version, plus I like to add almond milk afterwards and that thins it out.
  • Cook in microwave for one minute.
  • Stir and add almond milk and toppings.


Nutrition values are without toppings.
Use ¾ to 1 cup of water with your oatmeal. Add more or less according to how thick or thin you want your oatmeal.  I prefer mine thick, then I add almond milk afterward.
If you are gluten free, be sure to get certified gluten free oats and chocolate chips.
