Sweet Potato, one, peeled and chopped
Water, 2 cups
Oatmeal, 1 cup dry
Raisins or Dates (a small handful) or Maple Syrup, 1 tbsp as OPTIONAL sweeteners listed in order of calorie count from highest to lowest.
Cinnamon powder, to taste, optional
This refrigerates well. I warm in the microwave with a splash of rice milk. To shorten cooking time, cut the sweet potato in small chunks and it will cook faster. I quarter the potato and cut it at less than 1/2 inch intervals. That makes for easy eating and faster cooking. Just eyeball it. TIMESAVER: Cut the potato the evening before, place in your pot with water and the cinnamon stick. Heat to boil then simmer while your getting the oatmeal out. This recipe is as low as 220 calories per serving but the sky is the limit depending on how many sweeteners you use.
Serving Size: Makes two big bowls.
