Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 cup Quaker Old fashioned oats soaked overnight in a cup

    1 cinnamon stick broken in two or 1 tbsp ground cinnamon

    3 cups water

    2 cups skim milk

    2 tbsp honey

    6 packets of Splenda



Directions

Soak 1 cup of the oatmeal overnight or for over 6 hours or so. Once that is done, place in medium pot and add 3 cups of water and broken cinnamon stick. Simmer to medium heat for 10 minutes. Next add 2 cups of milk and the honey and cook on medium low heat for 30 minutes. Finally add Splenda and cook for 5 minutes. You will know its done as the consistency will thicken some and it will be a little creamy. Use more water or milk for a thinner consistency.

This will serve about 6 servings. Delish!

    I haven't tried it yet, but I try to avoid Splenda so I was thinking of substituting it with Stevia. - 1/31/11

    This is close to atole, which is made with corn masa. This is healthier and I am going to try soon. Thanks for great recipe! - 9/18/10
