Oatmeal {Breakfast ideas}

oatmeal with berries

My kidlet is on an oatmeal kick. Yesterday he wanted oatmeal with blueberries (frozen) and banana. It was actually tasty and he loved it.  Today he asked for oatmeal with blueberries and cherries (dried).

You may think oatmeal takes too long to cook. Pish posh! I take normal rolled oats (not quick cooking, yuck) and put a scoop in a big glass bowl (these from Pyrex). Then I use the same scoop to measure 2 scoops of water or mixed liquid (juice, almond milk, water). Into the microwave it goes for 3 minutes. I watch it after the second minute to be sure it doesn’t over cook. It will triple in size and then shrink so be sure your bowl is a lot larger than your ingredients. After that you stir it up, add your toppings and enjoy.
