As most of you know, I love oatmeal!
And one of my favorite brands has always been classic Quaker® oats!
Ever since I was a little girl, Quaker® oats have always found their way into our home. When I was small, my mom would make me a batch of oats with nothing more than milk and sugar. I just loved it so much, and I always looked forward to the coziness of oats. Of course, the ingredients in my oats have changed dramatically since I was a child.
My Superfood Oatmeal Bowl recipe I’m sharing today features hearty and plump old-fashioned Quaker® oats and some of my favorite superfoods that are high in antioxidants including raw organic cacao powder, organic blackberries, and raw organic mulberries. These ingredients create a chocolatey, sweet berry bowl of goodness for breakfast, and they blend wonderfully with the oats after sitting together overnight. While this isn’t a combination I’ve ever had before, I must say, it’s pretty tasty!
For the ingredients in my recipe I’m sharing today, I headed to Target to pick up my ingredients. You can always find Quaker® oats in the breakfast foods aisle at Target where the oatmeal and other breakfast options are sold.
Target even has fun and inspiring end caps set up with all sorts of unique ingredients to inspire various and limitless oatmeal bowl combinations of all kinds. I spotted superfoods, nut butter, and a variety of oatmeal options!
When I saw Navitas Naturals superfoods on the endcap, my inspiration for today’s recipe was born!
You all know I’m a huge fan of superfoods on occasion, and it’s always fun to make breakfast a little more lively.
About the ingredients I chose:
- Raw cacao is a great source of magnesium, iron, and antioxidants. It’s one of my favorite ways to add a pop and depth of flavor while also providing nutrients too.
- Blackberries are high in fiber and Vitamin C along with higher in antioxidants than traditional berries like blueberries. Blackberries also turn into a gooey delight once they soak overnight in the oats, and they’re one of my favorite sources of fiber to include each day.
- Mulberries contain over your entire day’s worth of Vitamin C in just 1/4 cup serving, and they’re a good source of fiber while also lower in sugar than most dried fruits. I’m a bit obsessed with these delicious berries since they taste a bit like a fig, a raisin, and caramel all in one!
- Rolled (old-fashioned) oats provide soluble fiber, are low in fat, and they are a good source of fiber, protein, and potassium. I don’t go a day without my oats for the way they make me feel and how simple they are to make!
I also added some raw vanilla bean powder, cinnamon for flavor, coconut flour to thicken, for fiber and for taste, some frozen raspberries for more nutrition and flavor, and a touch of pure stevia to sweeten it up a bit more.
This recipe comes together in under a minute, and you can simply let it sit overnight in the fridge. When you get ready for breakfast in the morning, everything’s ready to go and breakfast is done!

- tiny dash of pure stevia (optional)

- Add the liquid. Stir again enough to combine.
