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
  • Walnuts
  • Ground Flaxseed
