Warm Grapes & Walnut Oat Bran Bowl

(This post may have affiliate links. Please see my disclosure.)

After several days of heavy eating, I just wanted something that’ll keep me light and fresh.

So, of course, I went with warm grapes & walnut oat bran bowl.

When it comes to oat bran, I just use whatever I have hanging around to complete the bowl. Sometimes I will have something savory, sweet, or just plain.

Some of my favorite oat bran bowls include:

Dark Chocolate + Peanut Butter Oat Bran Bowl 

On my recent Trader Joe’s trip, I bought a bunch of seedless thomcord grapes, which are a hybrid of the popular Thompson seedless grapes and concord grapes. They are one of my favorites since there isn’t a hint of sourness and they are the perfect pop of sweetness and succulence. 

Anyone else dislikes sour fruit, or is that just me?

Because I house my grapes and most of my fruit in the fridge (for longevity and because I enjoy them cool), I decided to actually warm up the grapes a bit so there wasn’t a drastic temperature contrast between the grapes and warmly cooked oats. 

For the sake of ease and minimal cleanup, I decided to pop the grapes into the toaster oven for a few minutes to warm up. I set the toaster oven to 350 F degrees for about 5 minutes. The walnuts were toasted for about 1-2 minutes. 

Let’s get to the Warm Grapes & Walnut Oat Bran Bowl Recipe…

Warm Grapes, Walnut Oat Bowl

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Keyword: Fiber, Oat Bran, Oatmeal



  • Set the temperature for the toaster oven to 350F degrees. 
  • In a single layer, add the grapes and walnuts. 
  • Allow the walnuts to toast for 1-2 minutes. Watch them – they burn quickly. 
  • Once done, remove the walnuts and allow the grapes to cook for an additional 3 minutes.  Once done, set aside.
  • In a pot over medium-high heat, bring the oats to a boil. Then reduce heat to medium-low and cook until it has thickened, about a minute or so. 
  • Add the cinnamon and brown sugar. Give it a good stir. 
  • Pour the oats into a bowl and top with grapes, walnuts, and honey/syrup.


  1. I warmed the grapes in a toaster oven, but if you prefer them frozen or cool, then do your thing and have it that way. 
  2. I typically cook my oats in water, but dairy-free milk will yield a creamier bowl of oats. 
  3. Adjust the brown sugar/syrup/honey to your personal preference. I don’t like my food overly sweet, so a teaspoon of brown sugar and a drizzle of honey worked just fine for me. 
  4. Be careful with toasting walnuts in the toaster oven. They can burn quickly. Best to not leave them for over a minute or two. Or, you can just completely omit this step and just throw them into the bowl raw.  No biggie.
  5. This recipe yields about one serving.
