Recipe Card


  • 1 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon, plus more as needed
  • 1/4 teaspoon Vietnamese cinnamon, plus more as needed
  • Flake sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons coconut nectar
  • 1/2 small banana, halved lengthwise
  • A small handful cherries, pitted
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower seed butter, or nut butter of choice


  • Step 1

    Add the milk, oats, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt to a small pot, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Continue to stir the mixture until the oats begin to expand and absorb the liquid, about 3-4 minutes.

  • Step 2

    For a creamier texture, add more milk or water as desired. Once the oats are cooked through, remove from heat, stir in 1 teaspoon coconut nectar, and transfer to a bowl.

  • Step 3

    Top with sliced fruit, sunflower seed butter, extra cinnamon, the remaining coconut nectar, and a pinch of flaky salt on top. Season to taste.
