As I have started my new job I have had to adjust some of how we plan things around here. I have returned to meal planning. The kids have also been taking more responsibility around the house. One of the areas I love to let them help out is with breakfast. That’s where this time saving oatmeal recipe comes into play. This is a great way to save you some time in the mornings.
Time Saving Oatmeal Recipe
I am not a huge fan of oatmeal packets from the store. I find that they are packed with so much and they end up being quite pricey. When I sat down to meal plan this week, I decided to try something new with our oatmeal and it is working great.
You will need:
42 oz container of quick oats
1 cup brown sugar
6 oz dried mixed berries
5 oz dried cranberries
Sealed Cereal Container
Add all ingredients to your cereal container.
Make sure your lid is on really well. (I may have not done this step and spilled half a container but who’s admitting that one..)
Shake to mix together well.
Put away for when you need it for breakfast.
In order to cook
For every 1/2 cup of mix you will want 1 cup of boiling water.
Boil your water.
Add to 1/2 cup of mix.
Stir and let sit for a minute. It should set up well and be delicious.
You can also make it in the microwave if you have a child who is better with cooking with the microwave.
