Gather the yumminess!
Oatmeal, Brown Sugar (we use pure cane sugar now), Milk (Vanilla milk adds great flavor), Honey, Agave (still researching this products “healthiness”; make the best decision for your family) and Cinnamon. Lots of Cinnamon! We like sweet oatmeal!
Put your oatmeal in a pan. I use a smaller pan because it cooks fast so the small pan makes a faster cleanup. Hehe…
No special order in adding your goodies to your pan, but I like to put the dry ingredients in first, followed by the gooey ones and finally the water and milk to make it all “melt” together. The kids like to watch the goo too. Maybe that makes it more appealing? Breakfast goo…
And the final product! Cover it with fresh fruits and nuts. We LOVE blueberries and pecans on ours. Especially when I use Blueberry Honey! SOOO good! Enjoy it while it’s warm but we have found it does reheat well.
My Own Oatmeal 3 Cups Oatmeal (NOT quick oats)
1/4 C Brown Sugar (well packed to make a nice sand castle look)
1 Tsp Cinnamon (and maybe a bit more…)
1 Tbsp Honey
1 Tsp Agave
1 1/2 C Water
1 C Milk
This feeds me and all four kids but when Hubby eats with us, I add another cup of oatmeal and a bit more of each ingredient to keep it the same consistency. I really haven’t found a way to ruin oatmeal yet except for overcooking or using Quick Oats. Don’t use Quick Oats… the texture is weird!
