Easy Oatmeal


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I make Oatmeal every morning. I use the Old Fashioned Quaker Oats but I still microwave it. I use 1/2 cup Oats and 1 cup water and cook for 2 minutes. I have a canister that I store the Oatmeal in and I also keep a 1/2 cup measuring cup in there too..makes preparing it that much quicker.

    I do the same thing every morning. But I also add 1/2 cup of frozen cherries or 1/2 cup of frozen peaches and cinnamon. I microwave the fruit first and then add the oatmaeal and water. It is so filling and good. Great tip!

    I do this, too - but I don't have it every day.
