Keep stirring to make sure the oats don’t stick to the bottom and burn, this should only take about 3 minutes. Once the oats are ready, transfer to a serving bowl and top with your favorite breakfast bowl toppings like Greek yogurt, nut butter, sliced bananas, shaved coconut and chocolate shavings.
