- 1/2 quick oats and/or regular oats.
- 1 cup water
- 1 tb raisins
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 TB ground flax seed or 2 TB chopped walnuts
- 1 sliced banana
- 1/2 to 1 cup frozen berries
Place the oats, water, raisins, flax, banana and frozen berries in a small pan. Bring to a boil, turn down heat to low, and simmer for 2-3 minutes till done. Top with cinnamon. Total time is less than 5 minutes. Can also be prepared in a microwave.
this sounds much tastier to me!
You can also cook a weeks worth of the oatmeal, water and flax ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator. Then, portion out as needed each morning and reheat in a microwave. The other ingredients can be added each morning. This cuts the total preparation time in half.
You can also combine all ingredients the evening before in a bowl and keep them covered in the refrigerator. During the night, the oatmeal will soften and the flavors will blend. Then, in the morning, it can be heated and or microwaved in 2-3 minutes.
You will not miss anything
