  1. Step 1

    Heat oven to 350 degrees and bring a kettle of water to a boil.
  2. Step 2

    In a medium shallow casserole or baking dish, combine 3 cups boiling water and the nut butter and stir until smooth-ish. (Don’t worry about a few lumps.) Stir in oats. Season the mix with a big pinch of salt, and some cinnamon or nutmeg if you like.
  3. Step 3

    Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour, stirring halfway through. Taste and if the oats aren’t cooked enough, let it bake for 5 to 10 minutes longer.
  4. Step 4

    Garnish with whatever you like, and serve.
