Here’s our tried-and-true oatmeal recipe. The only sweetener is the juice we use to cook the oats and the frozen or fresh fruit we use to top it. I usually use frozen fruit, because it cools the oatmeal quickly. Plus, I like to keep my fresh fruit available for snacks. But we like to throw in fresh grapes, halved sometimes. They add a fun sweet pop to the bowl.
This feeds the four little piggies in our house.
In a medium saucepan boil:
- 1 1/2 cups filtered water
- 1 1/2 cups Juicy Juice or V-8 fruit and vegetable juice, any flavor
Once it’s boiling, add:
- 1 1/2 cups Old-fashioned Rolled Oats
Reduce heat to simmer and cook for about 5 minutes.
Pour into bowls and top with any or all of the following:
- Fresh or frozen fruit of your choice, diced
- Ground Flaxseed
