MommaGrizz's Basic Oatmeal

Submitted by: MOMMA_GRIZZ

Introduction

This is my basic oatmeal recipe to which I add fresh fruit, just before adding the oats, such two chopped apples, two cups chopped strawberries, two small chopped pears, - just remember to add the NI for the fresh fruit. I make a batch on Sunday morning, which gives me breakfast from Sunday to Friday.

Ingredients

    5 cups of cold water
    1 TB vanilla extract
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 tsp ground nutmeg
    1/4 cup raisins
    1/4 dried mixed fruit (chopped)
    3 1/2 cups Rogers Porridge Oats with Oat Bran, Wheat Bran and Flaxseed
    6 tsp of Becel margarine
    6 tsp of Splenda Brown Sugar Blend

Directions

Makes 6 servings

In a large pot add 5 cups of water, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins and chopped dried fruit. On low heat, steep until the dried fruit becomes plump.

***this is where I add the fresh chopped fruit that I've chosen, but don't forget to add in the NI for it*****

Add 3 1/2 cups of Rogers Oats, stir and let cook to desired doneness.

Dish out into 6 storage containers, to each (while hot), add 1 tsp of Becel Margarine and 1 tsp of Splenda Brown Sugar blend. When cool, snap the lids on and store in the fridge. (or serve all 6 while hot).

Great get up and go breakfast. I take it to work - chop it up in the container, microwave for 1 minute, then stir and microwave for 45 seconds. Good as fresh!
