Stovetop Scrambled Oats

Do not be thrown off by the name of this recipe. I can assure you that this oatmeal bowl does not actually taste anything like scrambled eggs. The “scrambled” part comes from the method of preparation.

Breakfast on the Go

For me, breakfast always needs to be quick and easy to eat quickly or take on the go. Because realistically, who has the time to go all out for breakfast every morning? We all live busy lives, we don’t have time for eggs, bacon, toast, freshly whipped butter, or hand pressed orange juice… So with that, I like to either make something super quick and easy, or meal prep for a couple days. AND this recipe offers both of those things.


Oatmeal is the holy grail for breakfast time. And for baking, snacks,… I’m always hyping it up, so I’ll save you the time and just link a couple recipes I think you should check out if you also like oatmeal.

How to serve this recipe

There are a few ways I like to “plate” this oatmeal

Option 1: a warm bowl of oatmeal with a little bit of milk of choice, nut butter, banana and berries on top.

Option 2: Greek yogurt base, oats crumbled on top, along with the other desired fruit of choice.

Option 3: “Cookie dough esk” kind of vibes. I literally take the oats, add a dash of milk, maple syrup, and about a table spoon of nut butter and mix it altogether. It becomes this thick cookie dough consistency. Add some chocolate chips and some berries and it satisfies my post meal sweet tooth.

Stovetop Scrambled Oats

Serves: 1-2 bowls of oatmeal

  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2-3/4 cup old fashion rolled oats
  • as much cinnamon as you want
  • light drizzle of maple syrup


  1. In a bowl, mash 1/2 a banana, and whisk an egg together.
  2. Heat a medium sized skillet to medium high heat.
  3. Add your oats into the mixture along with cinnamon.
  4. Add a little coconut oil, or oil of choice to the pan. Add you oats mixture and “scramble” them until they are your desired level cooked. The longer you go the crunchier they will be and vice versa. After a few minutes add a drizzle of maple syrup before removing from heat.
  5. Serve your oats however you like. You can totally keep this in the fridge for a few days and warm up in the microwave for easy access.

I'd like to consider myself a food and coffee enthusiast. I always get excited to create eat flavourful recipes that fuel my mind and my body. A few of my favourite foods consist of salads (the fun kind), sourdough bread, avocados, and almond butter. My coffee order is an iced americano with oatmilk no matter the weather.
