Simply Oatmeal Recipe




This is my son Gabe’s favorite oatmeal every school day for breakfast! He is my growing boy–I swear he looks like he is growing an inch each day– and I feel good having his belly full with all that good fiber and protein to tackle the day. I make this simple oatmeal from scratch every morning, using plain rolled oats,  before he goes to school and it literally takes 4 minutes.  

There is no need to spend money on store-bought-flavored-instant oatmeal packets—even most of the organic natural brands that I love for their other products always add salt, which is absolutely unnecessary and don’t end up really saving time. This is that quick and simple!

Ingredients
1 cup water
⅔ cup rolled oats (not the quick-cooking ones)
1 Tbsp dark brown sugar (optional)
fine ground walnuts
dusting of cinnamon
any sliced fresh or dried fruit (unsweetened)

Instructions
Bring water to a quick boil.
Add the rolled oats and let it boil uncovered for 1 minute (it will "foam", so lower the heat a little bit or just make sure it doesn't boil over).
Turn off the stove and cover for 3 minutes or until ready to serve.
Transfer to a bowl and sprinkle the brown sugar (if using), walnuts and cinnamon and top with any fresh sliced fruit and/or unsweetened dried fruit.
