Red Lentil Oatmeal

Shake up your breakfast routine with this hearty, protein dense recipe from our very own Three Farmers in-house dietitian Heather Deck PDt(c).


  • 1 Cup Steele Cut Oats
  • 1 Cup Split Red Lentils
  • 3 Cups Water
  • 1 ½ Cups of your choice of milk or milk beverage
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  1. Place oats, lentils and water in a medium sauce pan over medium heat and stir until combined.
  2. Let the mixture reach a rolling boil and reduce to a simmer while stirring to ensure the mixture doesn’t burn to the bottom of the pan.
  3. Add the milk and cinnamon to the pan once the water has been reduced. I used coconut milk to add extra flavor to my finished product.
  4. Continue simmering until the mixture reaches your desired consistency.
  5. Serve and top with your favourite mix-ins. I used 1 tbsp brown sugar, 1 tbsp whole flax seeds, ¼ Three Farmers Maple Cinnamon Roasted Chickpeas and half of a banana.

Adding lentils into your oatmeal is one simple way to increase the nutritional density of your breakfast. By incorporating lentils into your oatmeal, you are creating a complete source of protein, increasing the overall fibre content and increasing the overall iron content of your breakfast cereal.
