Our favorite thing to eat for breakfast around here is oatmeal. It can get pretty pricey and overloaded with sugar if you buy the packets, but I want to share an easy oatmeal recipe with you to avoid all that. I’m willing to bet that if you like oatmeal, you will like this.
You will need…
- Plain quick cook oats. I buy ours at ALDI for about $2.29 which is a lot better than paying $5 for the name brand at my local grocery store.
- Frozen, fresh or dried blueberries. I buy a frozen bag at Sams Club for a little over $8
- Brown sugar or honey
- Milk or water
First, boil a couple cups of milk/water with a pinch of salt on high.
Once your liquid is boiling, turn the heat down to medium and pour in enough oats to absorb most of the water.
Pour in the blueberries. As much as you like!
Stir. You may need to add more oatmeal if there’s too much liquid.
Turn off the heat and add a few teaspoons of brown sugar or honey and mix well.
(I got a little over zealous this morning and made enough to feed an army! There were leftovers, needless to say.)
This can be made in less than five minutes and it will keep you full for a long time. It’s a “stick to your ribs” kind of breakfast that is much more satisfying than cereal. Do you have an easy recipe to share? I am always looking for new ideas!
