Quick, delicious, healthy and filling. All the things I look for in a bowl of oatmeal. (Dessert oatmeal tip: Add 1 tsp. cocoa powder, 1 tsp milk and cover with 1 tbsp raisins, chocolate chips or almonds) Recipe can also be prepared dry ahead of time and stored in sandwich bags.

  1. Mix oats, brown sugar and cinnamon, sprinkle with salt.
  2. Pour cup of boiling water into bowl (I find if the water is already boiling before the microwave stage, it turns out much better).
  3. Microwave for 30 seconds, then stir and microwave for another 25-45 seconds (based on how thick you like it).
