Description

A basic healthy oatmeal recipe with instructions for how to cook old fashioned oatmeal on the stovetop or in the microwave. 


Scale

Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Add oats, water or milk and salt to a pot over medium/high heat.
  2. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat and continue to cook for about 5-7 minutes; stirring occasionally.
  3. You oatmeal is ready when the oats have soaked up most of the liquid and are creamy. Transfer to a bowl and add your favorite toppings.


Notes

  • To make old-fashioned oats in the microwave: add 1/2 cup oats and 3/4 cup liquid (water or milk) into a microwave-safe bowl and stir to combine. Microwave for 1 minute, then stir and continue to microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between each, until the oatmeal is the consistency you like. I usually cook them for a total of 3 minutes, but you’ll know it’s done when most the liquid is absorbed and oats are hot.
  • Carefully remove from microwave (bowl will be hot) and top with your favorite oatmeal toppings.
