Jazz up your Oatmeal!

We love oatmeal around here and it is so nutritious, but sometimes its easy to get bored of the same ol' thing. We can have plain oatmeal with a little brown sugar and soymilk for most days and love it ... then all of a sudden. Shraddha won't eat a single bite. So, I jazz it up!

Some of our classic favorites Oatmeal toppings are:

  • Brown sugar
  • Cinnomin
  • Sliced Almonds
  • Raisins and dried fruit (blueberries are YUM!)
  • Strawberry Jam
  • Maple Syrup

But even more fun is:

Spiced Oatmeal for two

  • 1 cup of Old Fashioned Oatmeal
  • 1/3 cup of raisins
  • 1 tsp of Pumkin Pie Spice* (or to taste)
  • 1 3/4 cup of water
  • Mix it all together in a microwave safe bowl. Cook for 5 minutes on 50% power. Sprinkle with some brown sugar and 1/4 cup of soy milk. ENJOY!

*Pumkin Pie Spice is a blend fo cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, mace and cloves.
