This stupid-easy oatmeal takes 10 minutes to make and provides all kinds of healthful, stick-to-your-ribs deliciosity. Inspired by NW Raw's
PCT Oatmeal. For a do-ahead option, make the dry mix the night before (or stick it in a jar to bring to work), add the hot milk, garnish, and voilà.
Except for the chia and flax, which swell to give this oatmeal thickness and body, the nuts, seeds, and dried fruit aren't set in stone, so feel free to use what you have on hand.
Nutritional values are based on one hearty serving.
