Speedy Berry Bowl with Pistachio Almond Butter

Posted by Nick Sheridan on

We all know the struggle. The alarm clock screams, you hit snooze (maybe a few times), and suddenly you're scrambling for a breakfast that's both delicious and nutritious. Enter the humble microwave oat bowl: a quick, customisable, and oh-so-satisfying solution to those hectic mornings (or afternoons, or evenings – we won't judge).

Today, we're taking the classic oat bowl to a whole new level with the help of our superstar nut butter duo: Pistachio & Almond Butter. This unique blend brings together the subtle sweetness of almonds with the vibrant nuttiness of pistachios, creating a flavour explosion in every bite.

Why Oats? A Nutritional Powerhouse

Oats are more than just a breakfast staple; they're a nutritional powerhouse packed with benefits. Here's what makes them such a great choice:

  • Fibre Fiesta: Oats are a fantastic source of fibre, which keeps you feeling full for longer, aids digestion, and helps regulate blood sugar levels.
  • Whole Grain Goodness: Whole grains, like oats, are packed with essential nutrients like vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
  • Heart-Healthy Helper: Oats have been shown to help lower cholesterol levels, which is beneficial for heart health.
  • Versatility is Key: Oats are incredibly versatile! You can enjoy them hot or cold, sweet or savoury, and customise them with a variety of toppings.

The Magic of Pistachio & Almond Butter

Now, let's talk about the star of the show – our Pistachio & Almond Butter. This nut butter blend isn't just about flavour; it boasts some impressive nutritional benefits too:

  • Protein Powerhouse: Both almonds and pistachios are good sources of protein, an essential nutrient for muscle building and repair, and overall satiety.
  • Healthy Fat Power: These nut butters are packed with healthy fats, which are crucial for nutrient absorption, cell health, and keeping you feeling satisfied.
  • Vitamins and Minerals: Pistachio & Almond Butter offers a good dose of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E, magnesium, and potassium.

Building Your Berry Blissful Oat Bowl Masterpiece

Now that you know the why behind the ingredients, let's get down to the fun part – building your perfect oat bowl!


  • ½ cup rolled oats (or quick oats, if you're short on time)
  • ¾ cup milk (dairy or non-dairy, your choice)
  • ¼ cup water
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp 99th Monkey Pistachio & Almond Butter
  • ½ cup fresh berries (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, or a mix!)
  • Additional toppings (optional): Chopped nuts, chia seeds, sliced banana, a drizzle of honey


  1. Combine the oats, milk, water, and salt in a microwave-safe bowl.
  2. Microwave on high for 1 ½ - 2 minutes, or until the oats are softened and cooked through. Stir halfway through for even cooking.
  3. While the oats are cooking, get creative! Chop up your favourite berries and prepare any additional toppings you desire.
  4. Once the oats are cooked, remove them from the microwave and pile on those juicy berries, drizzle/spoon on a generous amount of your 99th Monkey Pistachio & Almond Butter and dig in!

Tips and Tricks: For the Ultimate Oat Bowl Experience

  • Spice it Up! Craving something more? Add a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg to your base for a warm and inviting flavour profile.
  • Chocolate dreams: A tablespoon or 2 of cacao powder adds a decadent chocolate flavour to your oats that pairs beautifully with our Pistachio & Almond Butter. 
  • Frozen Fun: Don't have fresh berries? No problem! Frozen berries work just as well and add a refreshing touch to your warm oat bowl.
  • Overnight Oats: Feeling even more time-crunched? Make overnight oats! Simply combine all the ingredients (except the berries and toppings) in a jar the night before, refrigerate, and enjoy a grab-and-go breakfast in the morning.

More Than Just Breakfast: A Snacking Sensation

This Pistachio & Almond Butter Oat Bowl isn't just for mornings! It's a fantastic snack option too. The combination of protein, fibre, and healthy fats from the oats and nut butter will keep you feeling energised and satisfied between meals.
