Chef Robert Irvine’s Healthy Oats Recipes 3 Ways


Chef Robert Irvine here, with bodybuilding.com, about to show you three ways to make the most amazing oatmeal. Ricotta and fig oatmeal; oatmeal with some almonds and dried cherries; apple, brown sugar and cinnamon over here. Oatmeal is very overrated, a lot of people say. I think it’s the best dish to eat first thing in the morning. Why? It gives you two hours of slow-burn carbohydrates. Here’s the cool thing about oatmeal, it’s very versatile. You can crust chicken breast with it, you can make oatmeal like you do at breakfast, or you can make muesli using cold oatmeal, warm milk, and leaving it to steep overnight with fresh fruit. Now, I made one pot of oatmeal and I’m going to divide it into three different dishes. We have made our oatmeal with water, a little salt, and a little Stevia, gives a little sweetness, better for us. We are going to take dried figs in our first dish. Into a bowl. I’m going to add ricotta cheese into this bowl, then I’m going to take oatmeal that’s nice and warm, and the heat from the oatmeal is actually going to soften the figs. I don’t need to cook them, I just need to mix them. The heat from the oatmeal will give those nice, plump figs great flavor. You can see them just starting to bloom there. Remember, whenever we cook something, whether it be a spice, whether it be a dried fruit, it has to bloom like a flower, and the heat actually allows you to do that. Here we are, first one. Kids are going to love it. Straightforward, simple ricotta and fig oatmeal. Number two, we’re going to take dried cherries. Again, a little tart, a little different. A little coconut and Stevia mixed together, dried coconut. Some slivered almonds or bleached almonds. Again, you can use any nut you want. You like walnuts, use walnuts. If you like unsalted peanuts, you can do the same thing. Let’s take our oatmeal. Mix that together. Again, the cherries are dried, but the heat from the oatmeal, they’re going to open up nice. Think about this. If I had a banana, I wanted to put a banana on top of this, I could do just that. Again, number two. Oatmeal with some almonds and dried cherries. Simple, effective. Oatmeal number three. Apple. I’m looking for texture. I’m looking for flavor and sweetness. A little bit of cinnamon. I’m not a big lover of cinnamon, but it’s really good for you. And a little bit of brown sugar. Oatmeal back into the mix. I have not cooked or touched or sauteed the actual apples. I want the texture to be crunchy and crispy. Sweetness from the sugar, or the brown sugar, and the cinnamon gives me that good old American flavor. Three separate oatmeals from one batch. If I wanted to add strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, or any other type of nut, bananas. Or, some people, and here’s my wife by the way, sriracha, a thermogenic that heats the body, burns fat. Remember, thinking about healthy food. Everything that you’re eating here is healthy. If you want to replace the Stevia and the coconut with honey, we can do that, too. It all depends on your flavors, your taste, making food simple, that your kids will eat as well as you. For more information on healthy food, go check out bodybuilding.com. I’m Chef Robert Irvine. Until next time, be well and take care of each other.

  1. I just cut up bananas, kiwis, strawberries and grapes. No sugar as the fruit is sweet enough. Very healthy and simple.
    A good tip is if you cook the bananas with the oats they become very sweet and jammy.

  2. Wish he talked a bit more on which kind of oatmeal he used for these dishes. . old fashioned/quick/, etc or even better, if this can be done with other types of oatmeal such as steel cut, cream of rice, muesli, etc.

  3. ผมอยากให้ มีการแพร่ความรู้ต่อคนไทยด้วยถ้ามีแปลไทย

  4. I cant do milk or yogurt cause of my dairy allergy
    So alternatively
    I add a little more water than instructed and then add peanut butter, slight brown sugar and cinnamon and add either bananas or blueberries & strawberries into it

  5. I use steel cut oats from a health store. I believe the store brands are treated and heated to a point of no food value.

  6. What kind of oatmeal is that, it looks creamy. I eat quacker oats and it looks different, like it’s chunky. Hmmm.

  7. 120g of oats and 100g of sugar is better you unhealthy fatties with no appetite (guy in video too)

  8. Thank you for these recipes. Was looking for some spunkie recipes. My daughter has been training me and she loves siracha.

  9. What a waste of time!!
    Never taught how to cook the oatmeal, adding all those toppings to your oatmeal like he did was irrelevant!!

  10. Chef Robert I love you how you are how you looks how cooks and your shows I’m Spanish 🇵🇷 our food is very good but not healthy thank you for this section

  11. That’s some soupy oatmeal. Everything in that video is NOT healthy. Get rid of all sugar including the fruit. SUGAR IS POISON

  12. I make it with Irish or steel-cut oatmeal with nonfat evaporated milk, chopped walnuts, blueberries, and a sliced banana

  13. Another good combination if you like chocolate is: banana+cryshed almonds+cocoa powder or choco flavored protein powder.

  14. This is smart & tasty, food as it is meant to be. (no connection to channel)

    I'm in my mid sixty's and I weigh 175, same as high school. I do yoga, tai chi, bike, ski… and I don't listen to chefs who carry an extra 50lbs or more; or the dumb kids with nice arms that will ruin your health with idiotic recipes, toxic combo's and shortcuts. Subscribed

  15. I get this type of creamy texture in my oatmeal too,here's what i do:
    First i take 1 cup oats and boil them in water till they get soft, then i add milk after water is completely evaporated and cook it for few more mins.

  16. I was just thinking of getting back to cooking and eating oatmeal again starting from next week. And I find this video completely by accident. I’m glad I did. Super presentation of three terrific simple recipe ideas. Enjoyed it a lot. As I’m sure I will preparing and eating the same. 🙂

  17. Are you going to show everyone how to make your garbage protein bars next? For a guy whose life is focused on food I’m pretty sure there’s nothing resembling food in your bars.

  18. I was asked once, if I had just one food that I could eat for the rest of my life what would that be. My answer was oats. Preferably steel cut oats. There is so many ways you can prepare it and use it. Fruit goes wonderfully with it. Different seasonings change it. Oats is very versatile.

  19. Idk about the oatmeal but those Fit N Crunch protein bars you created are THE BEST protein bars I’ve ever had in my life. What a gift!!
