Easy Oats or Cereal for Two

Cook: 20-30 minutes



  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1/8 cup currents or raisins
  • 1 1/8 cups rolled oats or 4-grain cereal


Place the water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add dried fruit and cereal. Stir to mix. Reduce heat to low and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally for 20-30 minutes. Serve with sliced bananas, blueberries or other fresh fruit on the top. Add a small amount of other sweetener, such as brown sugar, if desired.

Hint: If you don't have enough time to make this in the morning, it may be prepared ahead of time and reheated in the microwave when you are ready to eat.
