Freeze Oatmeal in Silicone Baking Cups

Tuesday, March 06, 2012

What a neat tip on Lifehacker, I love Lifehacker for interesting stuff!

Old fashioned oatmeal tastes much better than instant varieties, is cheaper, and better for you. The downside is that it takes a while to cook, usually 10-20 minutes or a little longer if you use steel-cut oats. Why not make a large batch when you have the time and then freeze individual portions in silicone muffin tins and/or baking cups?

    I make mine in the microwave with half a banana and it takes 2 minutes. That has to be quicker than putting them up in singles.
I am not criticising just suggesting. Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I honestly never thought of this! What a smart way to make healthier oatmeal and still have it be "instant"!

    rather 'brilliant', isn't it? Oh the things that are 'so obvious' that we never think of. I need an easy alternative to my banana routine - this may just be it/ Thanks
