Try This Delicious Oatmeal with Spiced Berries

Today I’m sharing the art of making oatmeal with spiced berries you may want to eat every day.

Full disclosure: I was not a huge fan until I started eating oatmeal this way. The spoonfuls felt a bit gelatinous, and the flavor was on the bland side. Then after my studies in Ayurveda, I learned to spice it up.  

Growing up, I recall snow days where we would have small packets of flavored oatmeal. And I would see the lonely unflavored oatmeal remaining in the box until my brother or I had no other options; however, then we would heap brown sugar on top.  

Probably not ideal to have equal parts oatmeal and brown sugar, so here is a workaround full of flavor and color that might entice the pickiest of young eaters. 

Food Can Be a Powerful Tool for Creating Health

The food we eat has a major impact on our health, but the way we prepare it can also have an effect. Eating a diet high in processed foods, sugar, and unhealthy fats can lead to many health problems, such as obesity and heart disease. But what if I told you that changing just one of these factors could make all the difference? Just by cooking a meal with healthier ingredients, you can improve your health. Here are some tips to cook a vegan soup that is nutritious and delicious!

Add Flavors Rich in Phytonutrients to this Oatmeal with Spiced Berries

Grated Turmeric

Here are some fun facts about oatmeal.

Frozen berries are a great option, and organic berries can be found affordably at Costco.

1/2 cup of dry rolled oats has 4 grams of fiber, and when you add the chia, hemp, and flax, this is sure to provide beneficial soluble fiber that feeds our gut microbiome and calculated fiber for 1 cup of this cooked would be almost 7 grams!!!

If you are using dried turmeric, you can decrease it to 1/4 tsp though I would encourage you to find fresh as it has such a great flavor. Many supermarkets carry it near to ginger root.  


Rose Pistachio Dukkah

Toppings for this delicious oatmeal can be up to your imagination.

Add on top any combination of nuts, seeds, and berries. This one is topped with pistachio, rose, and hemp.

You can grind them together close to the time you plan to use them. They add an additional nutritional value and I just love the color that dried rose petals give to meals.

Oatmeal with Spiced Berries

  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x


Create the nutrient dense, colorful version of oatmeal that incorporates berries.


  • 1/2 cup steel-cut or rolled oatmeal
  • 1 tbsp hemp
  • 1 tbsp ground flax
  • 1 tbsp chia
  • 1 1/2 up to 2 cups water
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • 3/4 cup fresh/frozen berries
  • 1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1/2 tsp fresh grated turmeric


  1. Combine oatmeal, chia, hemp, ground flax, and water and cook until soft. Depending on the type of oat can be as soon as 5 min up to 20 min.
  2. In a separate pan, add berries, grated turmeric and ginger, and 1/2 cup water and cook for 5-7 minutes until mushy. Can mash them at this point and add on top of the oatmeal. I like to keep this liquid thin as it permeates through the whole bowl.


  1. Add on top any combination of nuts, seeds, and berries. This one is topped with pistachio, rose, and hemp.
