Hard Breakfast Oatmeal

 This morning I used up the last bit of my beloved almond milk to make oatmeal.  There wasn't enough milk left to put in almond milk in the usual ratio of 2 parts milk to 1 part oats, so I improvised and just used what I had on hand.  I think the ratio was 1 to 1.5 parts milk to 1 part oats.  The result was a delicious oatmeal, in which the oats were nicely cooked and somewhat moist and yet I could taste each oat separately.  What a tasty textural variation on the standard breakfast oatmeal!  I will definitely be making oats this way again!

To follow suit, you will need:
  • rolled oats
  • milk of choice (I used unsweetened almond)
  • cinnamon (optional)
  1. Mix rolled oats and milk in a ratio of approximately 1-1.5 parts milk for each part oats.
  2. Microwave for 2 minutes, or until oats achieve desired level of doneness.
  3. Sprinkle with cinnamon if desired.
  4. Enjoy!
