Brown Sugar Cinnamon Oatmeal is a deliciously sweet twist on a classic morning oatmeal porridge. This classic breakfast dish combines the simplicity of old-fashioned oats with the sweetness of brown sugar and cinnamon. This oatmeal recipe is a comforting and easy breakfast recipe to start your day.


  • 1 cup (100 gr) old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 cups (400 ml) plant-based milk (almond, soy, or oat milk)
  • 2 tablespoons (30 gr) brown sugar (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (adjust to taste)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Optional toppings: maple syrup, apples, bananas, chopped nuts (almonds or walnuts), raisins, fresh berries, or shredded coconut.


  1. Combine Oats and Milk: In a medium-sized saucepan, add the oats and milk. Stir to combine.
    Heat Over Medium Heat: Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the mixture to a gentle simmer. Reduce the heat to low to maintain a simmer. Stir occasionally to ensure an even and creamy consistency.
  2. Add Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, and Salt: Stir in the brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Adjust the sweetness and cinnamon to your liking. If you prefer a sweeter porridge, add more brown sugar, and if you like it warmer, add more cinnamon.
  3. Cook and Stir: Continue to cook the oats, stirring occasionally. Cook for about 5-7 minutes or until the oats are tender and the mixture has thickened to your desired consistency. If the oats become too thick, add more milk to reach your preferred thickness.
  4. Serve: Once the oats are ready, remove the saucepan from the heat. Let them sit for a minute to cool slightly and thicken further.
  5. Add Toppings: Serve the brown sugar cinnamon oats in bowls and top with your favorite toppings. Some topping ideas include maple syrup, sliced bananas, apples, chopped nuts, raisins fresh berries or shredded coconut.


  • Feel free to customize this recipe to your taste by adjusting the sweetness, cinnamon, and toppings.
  • For a less creamy porridge, use half water and half milk. And for a thicker porridge, use less milk.
  • Add a splash of extra milk at the end for a runny porridge.
  • To store, let it come to room temperature, place it in an airtight container, and refrigerate for about 5 days.
