Ultimate Oatmeal Bowl with Warm Berry Sauce & Almond Butter

Coming at y’all with my current favorite breakfast – the ultimate oatmeal bowl with warm berry sauce & almond butter! I have shared snapshots of the completed recipe several times via Instagram stories and after receiving several messages for the recipe, I decided it was time to share. But will say, the original and full recipe comes from my favorite cookbook, True Comfort by Kristin Cavallari. I find myself cooking at least one recipe from it each week – typically more like two or three. Bottom line, I very much recommend it – especially if you’re interested in living a healthier lifestyle and starting that in the kitchen.

Back to the recipe, it is an incredibly simple one and will truly knock your socks off! Joshua and I have both vocalized several times that this is the best oatmeal we have ever had! After making several times I have switched up the ingredients a little – taken a few out while adding a couple others. Below you will find my version of Kristin’s recipe. Again, I highly recommend her cookbook True Comfort and it is there you will find the full/original recipe as well.

See below for the ingredient list and steps to make this delicious oatmeal bowl. Enjoy!


For Oatmeal

1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats

1 cup almond milk – Simply Almond is my absolute favorite!

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 cup almond butter – I use chunky but creamy would be great as well!

For Warm Berry Sauce

1/2 cup fresh blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

2 tablespoons water

Sprinkle of cinnamon


  1. In a small saucepan, combine berries, pure maple syrup, water and sprinkle of cinnamon. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook until the sauce has thickened – typically 5-10 minutes. Occasionally stir to prevent sticking.
  2. While the warm berry sauce is cooking, combine oats, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon in a different small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce to low heat and cook until mixture is creamy – typically about 5-10 minutes.
  3. Place oatmeal in bowl and top with almond butter and warm berry sauce.
  4. Enjoy! Can add additional maple syrup if desired.
