Recipe: Easy Fruit and Nut Oatmeal

I have never been a fan of oatmeal, but this "recipe" really changed my mind.  (Kyle made it for me this morning as I ran around, frazzled, trying to get 3 kids+myself ready for church!  He is awesome!)
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup water (or milk alternative...water was fine for me!)

Bring water to a boil, with a dash of salt.  Add oats and cook for about 5 minutes.  Top with the fruits/nuts of your choice!

I used:  1/2 tsp of turbinado sugar, fresh raspberries and blueberries, raisins and cranberries, pecans and walnuts, and diced up a quarter of a small, green apple!  I am usually starving about midway through church, but this kept me full until about 1pm!


  1. I love old-fashioned oats! I mix them with all natural peanut butter, stevia, and cinnamon and eat on gala apples as an afternoon snack. It keeps me full and I have to sometimes make myself eat a little something for dinner because I'm still full. So good! I may have to try this oatmeal.

  2. We LOVE Stevia! It has changed my life LOL
