Favorite Healthy Oatmeal

We haven't used packaged, flavored oatmeal in years. This makes such a quick alternative, and is made with all-natural ingredients. Still quick, it can even be made the night before, refrigerated, and just reheated in the morning.

I also make this one serving at a time, using 1/4 cup oats, 1/4 cup fruit, 1/3 cup boiling water, and a tiny bit of salt.

Ingredients

  • 1 c
    quick oats
  • 1 c
    cut up fruit of choice, fresh or frozen - we usually use blueberries.
  • 1 pinch
    salt
  • 1 1/3 c
    boiling water

    natural sweetener of your choice, if desired

    (raw sugar, stevia, succanat, honey, agave, etc.)

How to Make Favorite Healthy Oatmeal

Step-by-Step

  1. Start your water boiling. Microwave the fruit in bottom of a medium bowl about 30 - 60 seconds.
  2. Stir in quick oats and salt, then pour on boiling water and combine well. Let rest 2 minutes.
  3. May be served with cream and sweetener at this point. Makes 4 servings of 95 calories each (18 g carbs, 3 g fiber). Or, if you like it more done, microwave for 1 - 2 minutes, watching carefully to prevent overflow.
  4. Many different types of fruit can be used. We like the blueberries, strawberries, and chopped peaches. I've also used chopped fresh apple or sliced banana. Also good with chopped dried apples and raisins, and can add chopped nuts if desired. If using dried fruit, add a tiny bit of water before microwaving the fruit.
