Oatmeal is the perfect breakfast. It's inexpensive, filling and delicious. Here's an easy way to cook oatmeal that your family will love.
So if you're making a single serving of oats, you would add 1/2 cup of oats, 1/2 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of water and so on.
Portion it off into 4 bowls, or however servings you made. If you notice I have one big oatmeal eater (the 4 year old, she can never get enough) a baby (small bowl on the right), and two normal size bowls.
Now comes the fun part: toppings! Seriously you can put almost anything on oatmeal. My 7 year old even likes a bit of cocoa powder in her oatmeal sometimes. The sky's the limit here folks!
Easy Creamy Oatmeal
2 cups regular rolled oats
2 cups milk (can use powdered)
2 cups water
Combine all ingredients in a pot and cook over medium heat stirring occasionally and more frequently as it gets thicker.
When the oatmeal is nice and thick, take off the heat and portion into 4 bowls. As the oatmeal sits, it will get thicker. Top with your favorite toppings!
What is your favorite food to put on oatmeal?
I love pumpkin seeds, almond butter, coconut flakes and bananas, yum!
