Mighty Bone-Loving Oatmeal

November 25, 2022
Irma Jennings

The best breakfast cereal for your bones

Mighty Bone Loving Oatmeal packs a delicious nutrient boost. Oats are high in the form of soluble fiber called beta-glucan, which is beneficial for heart health. They are a good source of manganese, a component of antioxidant enzymes, important in facilitating bone development and helping to make and break down glucose. Oats are also a good source of calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium.

Adding Berries

My bones feel nourished eating my, cook-once-eat-twice (or 3-4 times), mighty bone-loving oatmeal especially as the weather gets colder. Since I find it so soothing I usually eat oatmeal all year round. Adding berries rounds out this pleasurable meal with a touch of sweetness.

Mighty Bone Loving Oatmeal

My mighty bone loving oatmeal is not your every day oatmeal. Check out the ingredients and enjoy a breakfast that is great for your bones as well as delicious.

  • 1 fine mesh strainer


  • 1/2 cup steel cut oats organic
  • 1/2 cup groats organic optional
  • 1/4 cup Teff optional
  • 1/4 cup quinoa
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar soaking
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 3 Tbsp chia seed or Zen Basil Seeds
  • 3 Tbsp flax seeds ground
  • 1/2 tsp spices cinnamon (ceylon is the best), nutmeg, clove
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract optional
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter
  • 6 prunes chopped or 1 Tbsp prune puree
  • 1 handful blueberries optional
  • 1 dash salt


  • Soak oats, groats, teff and quinoa in water with 1 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar over night.  Make sure grains are covered in water. This starts the sprouting process.
  • In the morning, using a fine mess strainer, empty and rinse the soaked grains. You can also use a nut bag or cheese cloth bag.
  • Place grains in a pot and add 3 cups of fresh water.  Bring to a boil.  
  • Add your spices, vanilla extract, if using chopped prunes add those now.
  • Lower temperature to medium heat
  • Stir your oatmeal
  • Add Zen Basil seeds or chia seeds
  • Cover your oatmeal and turn off flame
  • Oatmeal should cook in about 20 minutes - you want it wet (but not runny) so when it’s time to add the ground flax oatmeal won’t be paste like.
