Bone Broth Oatmeal
I often get asked questions like: “how do I get bone broth into my daily routine.” Aside from drinking by the mug full, oatmeal is the perfect meal to add in bone broth.
A good bone broth acts as the perfect base for many dishes beyond just sauce and soup. Cooking with bone broth is the easiest way to ensure you’re getting enough collagen in your diet. And bone broth oatmeal is among the easiest meals to substitute bone broth into.
But doesn’t it make my oatmeal taste funny? Nope. Quite the opposite. The gelatin in properly made bone broth naturally thickens oats -- giving a fantastic consistency to the morning staple.
You can make a sweet and filling bowl of oatmeal more nutritious by replacing the milk or water with bone broth. It’s the perfect balanced breakfast that will keep you satiated throughout the day.
The protein from the bone broth will keep hunger at bay. The oats and good fats help avoid any crashes that may be associated with the traditional sugar laden breakfasts like cereal.
Feel free to get creative as there are endless variations on the recipe below, so long as you think about keeping the combination of healthy proteins (bone broth), unprocessed carbohydrates (oats) and fats (cacao nibs, chia, walnuts , etc).
The combination below has the perfect sweet and savoury mix to satisfy your hunger. The cacao nibs not only give an amazing crunch and mouth feel, they are packed full of fiber, antioxidants, magnesium and potassium.
- 1/2 cup of oatmeal (steel cut or rolled)
- 1 cup of organic bone broth (chicken is best)
- Pinch of salt
- Pinch of cinnamon
- 1 tbsp cacao nibs (chia or walnuts also work)
- Optional sweeteners: 1 tbsp maple syrup or a diced banana
Mix bone broth, salt and oats together in a pot. Cook for 10 mins on low heat, stirring occasionally. Once cooked, transfer to a bowl, stir in your cacao nibs and enjoy!
Hi Margie, yes you can substitute water for liquid bone broth.
Or if you have a powder I Would make your oatmeal first, then add 1 tbsp of powder ontop and mix it in.
I just bought some chicken bone broth for the first time and was wondering what to do with it. I eat oatmeal everyday but it’s instant. Can I mix the bone broth with my instant oatmeal instead of using water?
Thanks so much for leaving a comment. Glad you found my little slice of the internet. I love steel cut oats as well!!
Hey Connor I’m a day one bone broth enthusiast! I love steel cut oatmeal. TJoes has it cooked and sold in their freezer. I under the nutritional side of BB. Basically it’s a high protein diet. I guess I’ll have to give up the dates and raisins. Thank you for sharing your journey.
