4 cups Quaker Quick oats
1 tsp Salt
9 cups of boiling water
(in one pot)
2 Cups Rogers Porridge Oats Steel Cut Oat Blend
1 Tsp Salt
6 Cups Boiling Water
(in another pot)
1 796 Jar of Unsweetened Apple Sauce
1 Cup Splenda
1 Cup Brown Sugar (loose, not firmly packed)
1 Cup Nature's Intent Chia Seeds
2 Cups Dried mango - finely chopped
1.25 cups dried apricot - finely chopped
1 cup flavored cranberries (cherry flavor)
You can freeze the oatmeal in muffin tins. Just spray with cooking oil, fill tins with oatmeal and freeze for several hours. Once the oatmeal is frozen it can be easily popped out of the tins and stored in freezer bags. You can use one or two frozen oatmeal muffin "pucks" for a quick breakfast. Just pop them in a bowl and place in the microwave for a minute and a half or so and breakfast is ready.
However you store this oatmeal, individual servings or otherwise, you can top it with sunflower seeds, almonds, granola, spices and or yogurt if you'd like to change things up from day to day. Just remember to add in the calories for your toppings!
Measure ingredients for each oatmeal batch and pore water into each pot to heat - 9 cups of water for the quick oats and 6 cups of water for the steel cut oats.
You'll need 4 cups of quick oats, and 1 tsp salt for the quick oats plus the 9 cups of water once it's boiled. Add the oats and salt to the water when it's boiling and then simmer for 5 minutes stirring frequently.
Steel Cut Oats
Measure 2 cups of Steel cut oats and 1 tsp salt and add them to the 6 cups of water once it's boiling. Turn it down to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes, stirring frequently.
Once both oatmeal's are finished I usually transfer them to a very large pot that will hold both batches and the rest of the ingredients comfortably.
Add the dried fruit - mango, apricot, cranberries and stir well. If the mixture starts to become too stiff you can add some boiled water to thin the oatmeal. Add a cup or two at a time, the oatmeal and dried fruit will absorb it fairly quickly.
