Oatmeal Always Oatmeal

Along with flour, sugar, salt and pepper, you will always find oatmeal in my pantry; keep it in yours too. One container of Quaker Oats, Old Fashioned, oatmeal contains 13 fiber filled servings at 150 calories per 1/2 cup.

I never buy the kind that comes in individual serving size envelopes filled with sugar. I also shy away from instant preferring to use “Old Fashioned.”

There are several ways to prepare oatmeal and enhance the flavor.

Ways to Prepare

  • Overnight oats: Add 1/2 cup oats and 1/2 cup liquid (milk or water) to a glass container. Give the ingredients a stir and then cover and store in the refrigerator overnight.
  • Stovetop: Boil 1/2 cup water or milk, stir in 1/2 cup oats and cook for 5 minutes on medium heat, stir occasionally.
  • Microwave: Combine water or milk and oats in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes.

Making Oats Delicious

For any of the preparation methods above, you can enhance the flavor by adding your favorite ingredients including:

ApplesauceBlueberriesAlmonds and Walnuts
Apple ButterBrown SugarRaisins

And then top it off with a splash of coconut milk, almond milk, half and half or any other milk product of your liking.

And of course, oatmeal is delicious in cookies too.
