Apple Abs of Steel Oatmeal Bowl

By Ella Magers | March 02, 2016
For a hearty start to the day this oatmeal will provide you with long-lasting energy. It’s especially good to eat on jog-day, as the buckwheat and walnuts aid the cardiovascular system immensely. You’ll also be provided with enough fiber to encourage healthy digestion. Raisins are linked to promoting good intestinal health, speeding up your system and promoting a faster metabolism. Long used in Chinese medicine, goji berries are said to have a positive impact on overall health and organ functioning.


  • 1 apple, cored and chopped into bite-size pieces
  • ½ cup (80 g) rolled oats or use steel cut oats, which have a longer cook time
  • ¼ cup (170 g) buckwheat groats or sub more rolled oats
  • 1 cup (235 ml) water
  • ½ cup (120 ml) vegan milk of choice
  • ¼ cup (35 g) raisins
  • ½ tsp cinnamon, or to taste
  • ¼ cup (30 g) walnut pieces
  • 2 tbsp (30 g) coconut flakes
  • 1 heaping tbsp (15 g) hemp seeds
  • 2 tbsp (30 g) goji berries
  • Stevia to taste
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) pure maple syrup, optional


Servings: 2 | Prep time: 5 minutes | Creation time: 15–20 minutes

Combine the apple, oats, buckwheat, water, milk, raisins and cinnamon in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.

When it reaches a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until it’s thick, about 10 minutes, adding more milk if it becomes too thick.

Once the cereal has reached the desired thickness, add the walnuts, coconut, hemp, goji berries, stevia and optional maple syrup. Stir until thoroughly combined.

You can add a few more walnut pieces, coconut flakes and goji berries on top for a nice presentation.
