Bone broth for breakfast?! How?!

That’s right baby, in my house we drink bone broth for breakfast.  Not every day mind you, nor in big bowls of thick soup.  Rather, in OATMEAL!

No, I’m not kidding you. It’s rich and delicious, and the oatmeal still comes out buttery and sweet.  And you know what, it happens to be the best oatmeal I’ve ever had.  Yup, I’m tooting my own horn  My kids gobble it, my husband has (er, had) no idea, and I’ve sat there smugly enjoying the scene.

But wait, why should one eat bone broth for breakfast?  Because bone broth is one of the most healing foods you can eat, is extremely nutrient-dense, and is excellent for digestion and combating the many seasonal illnesses surrounding us.  Grains are by nature tough to digest, so adding bone broth to any grain dish is a good way to ease your stomach into digesting grains, or at least passing them through without tearing up your insides.

How do I do it?  Here’s the recipe!

Bone broth Breakfast Oatmeal

  • 1 cup of oatmeal
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tbsp (or big splash!) of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup of bone broth
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk (you can sub in raw milk or cream if desired)
  • a generous pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup of grade B or C maple syrup (or more, if desired)
  • 5 tablespoons of butter (or more, if desired)

Soak oatmeal, water and apple cider vinegar in a small pot overnight.   In the morning, mix in bone broth, coconut milk, and salt and cook for 5-10 minutes on low; be careful not to burn it.  Turn off stove and add in syrup and butter.  Then enjoy this rich, satisfyingly healthy goodness.

  1. Hi Gena,
    What a great idea!! I just got a pot of oats soaking and in the morning I’m going to add the broth!! I never thought of this!! Thanks for sharing!!

  2. Let me know how it goes! To be fair, I usually drizzle a little bit of real syrup on right before serving, along with another pat of butter so the kids can SEE the syrup. It helps somehow 🙂

  3. I would’ve never thought to use bone broth for oatmeal! What a fantastic idea. I love oatmeal (and it’s especially good for my milk supply) but I always struggle with what else to eat with it for some protein and fat balance. I’m definitely giving this a try!
