Breakfasts are nearly impossible at our house! All of us getting dressed, getting fed and getting out the door on time is sometimes too much to ask for. So quick, easy, tasty yet healthy breakfasts seem to be a wishful dream. We’re guilty of fast food and even store bought pre-made freezer foods – Yuck! But we try to stick to some where between paleo and “clean” eating in our home and lately we’ve fallen completely off the wagon. In an attempt to get us back on track, I’ve come up with a super easy home made instant oatmeal recipe. If you decide to give it a try then be sure to share what you think in the comments section. Enjoy!
Here’s what you’ll need…
- - 2 C. Quick Cooking Rolled Oats
- - 1 Tbsp. Cinnamon
- - 1/3 C. Raisins
Here’s what you do…
- Mix it all together in a convenient storage jar! Wow – was that easy or what!
Feel free to mix in other dried fruits, nuts, flax seeds or whatever else floats your boat. Notice how there is NO sugar in this recipe? You get the sweet taste from the raisins or any other dried fruits you use! It’s simple, clean and healthy… plus quick to make! Just combine 1/2 C. mix with 1 C. water then microwave for 90 seconds.
For those of you who stay far away from microwaves: boil the water first, stir it all up then set aside until everything is soft. And if you want more of a sweet taste but don’t want the sugar then try drizzling with honey, agave or adding some applesauce! I also like to add a bit of Wholesome Goodness almond milk for a little bit of extra creaminess. YUM-O! My daughter and I can’t get enough!
If you’re looking for an inexpensive storage container then check out Dollar Tree! That’s where I snagged my super cool, heavy duty glass jar. I wanted something that looked nice-ish because I keep the jar sitting on my counter next to my coffee pot. That way it’s super easy to just toss a couple scoops in a bowl, microwave then go! I’m able to make a bowl while my coffee brews so they’re both done at the same time.
