What's better than warm oatmeal on a cold morning?
Oatmeal is one of my favorite things to make for breakfast, but I like to make it "fancy." By that, I mean adding fruit, nuts and other delicious add-ins. If you have 3 minutes and a microwave, you can easily transform regular 'ol oatmeal into the "fancy" kind that you'll pay $4+ for at your coffee shop.
TO MAKE ONE SERVING OF OATMEAL
1/2 cup of old fashioned oats in a microwave safe bowl
Add 3/4 cup of your choice of milk (cow's, almond, flax, coconut, whatever)
Microwave for 3 minutes
Carefully remove from microwave (it's HOT)
Add in your choice of toppings, stir and enjoy!
Here are some delicious combinations that I like:
- Dried cranberries, sliced apple, chopped walnuts, agave
- Chopped walnuts, blueberries, juice of half a lemon, honey
- Pumpkin seeds, sliced banana, pecans, maple syrup
Use whatever you like and whatever you have! Cheers to better breakfasts.
