Maple-Pecan Oatmeal Breakfast Bowl

Cuisinart original

The microwave is a quick way to create the perfect bowl of oatmeal. We love toasting nuts, seeds, and coconut to add nutrition, flavor, and some crunch.


Makes about 3 cups (3 to 4 servings)


⅓    cup chopped pecans
2     tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
½    teaspoon olive oil
       Pinch sea salt
1½ cups water
1    cup rolled oats (not the instant variety)
2    teaspoons pure maple syrup
½   teaspoon ground cinnamon
⅔   cup mixed fresh berries (if frozen, thaw first)
2    teaspoons chia seeds
