My uncle is an Ironman triathlete, and this is what he always eats on hard training days or before events... He always made it for me when I was little, so it's one of my ultimate comfort foods!

This is excellent! I omitted the raisins because we don't have any right now, and I didn't really feel like anything was missing. Also, I just kind of eyeballed the amount of honey (I probably used close to 1 Tbsp). What a great breakfast! I love the texture and taste the grape nuts give to the oatmeal. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for posting it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine oats and water in a very deep microwaveable bowl. Microwave for 3-5 minutes, depending on your microwave wattage. (Alternatively, oats can be cooked on the stove).
  2. Remove oatmeal from microwave (careful, it's hot!) and stir in remaining ingredients.
  3. Can be made with more raisins, really it's up to your own raisin tolerance :).
  4. Sometimes I add slivered almonds or walnuts, depending on my mood and their availability.
