We have come to believe that those little pre-flavored packets of oatmeal are easier than making regular oats and adding what we want. But honestly, it can be just as quick to make a delicious and healthy bowl of oatmeal with rolled oats.
I put a bit of rolled oats in a bowl and added some milk (raw milk, yum!) and popped it in the microwave for 45-60 seconds (there I am using that microwave again). I added real maple syrup (you really don’t want “maple flavored” corn syrup) and homemade peanut butter.
I also have a jar in my pantry of chopped up nuts that I can add to yogurt and oatmeal, or anything I want, to boost flavor and protein. My jar contains almonds and walnuts. I didn’t spend a bunch of time chopping nuts, just tossed them in the Vitamix.
So back to the oatmeal.
I topped with some of the chopped nuts, raisins and shredded, unsweetened coconut, and one last drizzle of raw milk.
There it is. A delicious, hearty, filling, healthy breakfast (was that enough adjectives for you?) that is just a quick as a little packet of oatmeal but much better tasting and better for you.
