  • Microwave
  • A Mug


  • 1 tbsp  maple syrup  (honey or agave)
  • 2 tsp  water
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • tsp salt*
  • 4 ½ tbsp rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp dessicated coconut
  • 1 tbsp  pecans , chopped


  • In the large microwave safe mug, mix the maple syrup, water, oil, salt, oats and nuts until blended.
  • Microwave for 1 minutes 30 seconds and stir, making sure to stir up any syrup on the bottom of the mug. (timing is based on my 1200W microwave so your timing might vary)
  • Microwave for 1 minutes longer or until oats are golden brown. You will see them getting golden in color and starting to toast up. Be careful it doesn’t get too hot as it can burn.
  • Let it stand for 2 to 3 minutes to cool before eating. If you have extra store in an airtight container for 5 days.



  • Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug. The mugs I use are small, roughly 6oz (¾ /1 cup)
  • Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook.
  • Add 1 chopped tablespoon of dried fruit once microwaved (e.g., raisins, apricots, cranberries)
  • ⅛ teaspoon is simply a ½ of a ¼ teaspoon
