1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup 2 percent milk (or you can use whole)
2 teaspoons of honey or brown sugar
A pinch of cinnamon
A pinch of salt
Suggested toppings: a handful of berries or chopped fruit, a spoonful of nuts or nut butter, a sprinkle of flaxseed or shredded coconut.
Instructions: combine all the ingredients in a small pot over high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook 5 to 7 minutes, until oats are plump and the mixture is thick.
Serve immediately with your toppings of choice.
It felt like an oatmeal morning today. I have had this version for a while. Usually I like to make several servings in a crockpot with apples and dried cranberries, but this was for one serving and I could whip it up quickly.
I couldn't find the cinnamon and did not use. Still very tasty. The toppings on hand were strawberries, blueberries and walnuts, a favorite combination of mine.
The snow is still on the ground but none forecast for a while. (This was from Saturday.)
We have one more day to enjoy our company. It has been a lovely weekend.
I'm leaving you with this photo and wise words. I am not sure where it came from. I forgot to take a note at the time I collected it, but I thought it was lovely and worthy of sharing.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope your week is a great one.
