Maple Cranberry Oatmeal

Submitted by: MRSKATETHEGREAT

Introduction

This recipe is from the Quaker Oats website, although I didn't use Quaker Oats :) It makes 4 servings; since there are only two of us, I like to freeze two individual portions in ziplock baggies to reheat later. I usually top with a few crushed pecans and a tiny bit of brown sugar. Enjoy!

Ingredients

    2 cups oats (Quaker or rolled oats)
    3 1/2 cups 2% milk
    1/2 cup Craisins or other dried cranberries
    1/3 cup maple syrup
    1/4 cup wheat germ

Directions

In medium saucepan, bring milk to a gentle boil. (Watch carefully.) Stir in oats, cranberries and syrup. Return to a boil; reduce heat to medium. Cook 1 minute for quick oats, 5 minutes for old fashioned oats or until most of milk is absorbed, stirring occasionally. Let stand until desired consistency. Stir in wheat germ.

  • I used fresh cranberries, I just popped them first in a little bit of boiling water and sugar. It was delicious, didn't really need any extra brown sugar on the top :) - 12/17/12
