    oat meals huh? funnny!

  2. Jenny E says:

    Why add all that refined sugar? I find that fresh fruit (e.g. blueberries, banana, apple, sliced peach, etc.), sliced almonds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, cardamom and/or cinnamon add nutrition and flavour to ordinary oatmeal.

    I like bananas in oatmeal. They have the same creamy texture & the banana is not too sweet. Add some peanut butter & maybe crumbled bacon like one blogger sugests & you could have Elvis oats! I'm kiding but oatmeal is a food you can be very creative with.

  7. Kirsti says:

    Thanks for the new ideas. I have a bunch of oatmeal that I've been avoiding because it's not my favorite. I like everything with chocolate and peanut butter though – great idea!

    I use instant Quaker Oats- pureed oats in blender= then store in same container. For 1 serving add 3TBSP of purred oatmeal to 8oz of evaporated milk or coconut milk, with 1/2 tsp of cinnamon,1/4 tsp of ground cloves,1/2 tsp of vanilla extract, 1 dab of butter. stir constantly till cooked, about 30 minutes. Good for Diabetics & the elderly with no teeth. I used to give it to my toddlers & they still ask me to prepare it when they come to visit.

    I may be missing something here, but Quaker Oats, or any other branded oats, don't really have to be cooked for any length of time…For years I have just poured boiling water to cover, plus an inch or so, in a saucepan with my oats, sugar, fruit, or whatever I wish to add, cover and leave alone, for ten or fifteen minutes. Done…then I can add cream, coconut milk or whatever else I have a fancy for at that time, (including a dram of rum) and enjoy.
    This works brilliantly with Viginia's additives.
