My Own Old Fashion Oatmeal Recipe

Updated on March 23, 2013

Start With Old Fashioned Oats...

 This is a filling, delicious breakfast recipe that I have most mornings in the winter.  Be sure to use old-fashioned oats rather than instant (processed) oats.  Start to finish this recipe only takes about 10 minutes, so be sure to get all the goodness you can from the grain.  

Fruits, Nuts & Whole Grain Oats

Here's What You'll Need...

2 quart covered ceramic casserole dish.

½ cup of old fashioned oats.

1 generous tsp honey.

A generous shake of cinnamon.

Dried fruit, flax seeds, and nuts to taste.

More Delicious Whole Grain Possibilities!

Here's What You'll Do...

Measure the oats into the casserole dish. Add all of the other ingredients. Do not stir at this point. Cover the dish and microwave on high for 3 minutes. Remove the cover, stir, and microwave on high, uncovered, for another 3 minutes. Remove the dish from the microwave, stir. Top with milk or yogurt of any flavor. Enjoy!

    Many thanks! Oatmeal is one thing I always cook in the microwave. I simply cannot cook it on the stovetop without burning it!

    When my mother lived with us she loved oatmeal. I cooked it on top of the stove. Wish I had had this recipe back then. Certainly easy and of course, healthful. Up votes and tweeting.

    I didn't know that, but how instant do you want it? This is pretty fast! :D That would surely be better than the expensive processed product you get in the store. Thanks!

    sounds great on a snowy day like today. Did you know that if you put 'old-fashioned' oats into the blender and pulse it a few times you will end up with your own 'instant' oats?
