  • 2 cup oats
  • 3 tablespoons ground flaxseeds
  • 2 cup milk
  • 2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup


  • Oatmeal is incredibly easy to make from scratch, and this recipe is no exception. All you need is a small pot and a spoon to stir with.
  • Simple measure out all the ingredients, and add them to your pot. Heat the mixture up on medium heat while stirring occasionally. The grains will start to absorb the liquid, and gain the classic oatmeal texture.
  • If you find that the oatmeal is too thick for your preference, you can add some more milk to make it thinner. This is also a great way to save over cooked oats!


  • Keep the oats on low to medium heat. High temperatures could burn your oatmeal.
  • If you wish to use steel cut oats, these tend to require longer cooking times. You might also need to add more liquid.
  • Leftover flaxseed oatmeal can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. Serve it cold, or reheat it in the microwave before serving.
