The Best Oatmeal Ever!

Cold Nights End Nicely With Warm Oatmeal!

When it's super cold outside, turn to some tummy warming food such as oatmeal! Oatmeal comes in many different forms, such as the packaged microwavable type. While this is handy in a pinch, I certainly enjoy some oatmeal that gives me options. I definitely like to take the time preparing oatmeal from scratch, over the stove. Not only do I get to stand over a source of warmth for a longer period of time, I get to put whatever I want into the finished product! Below are my most favorite oatmeal additives


Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: One serving


  • 1/2 cup Oatmeal
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 container yogurt
  • 1 piece fruit, chopped

Mix and Match

  1. Boil the water
  2. Add the oatmeal and stir until the oatmeal is the desired consistency. For thicker oatmeal, cook longer and add less water. For thinner oatmeal, cook for less time and add more water.
  3. Chop the fruit into tiny sections. Puree the fruit for a smoother texture.
  4. Remove the oatmeal from the heat and transfer it to a bowl. Add the fruit.
  5. Add the container of yogurt. For smoother oatmeal, add more yogurt. For thicker oatmeal, add less yogurt.

      I eat a couple of bowls of oatmeal a week; usually at night, with toast and a glass of milk, as my dinner. I usually just add sugar and milk to my oatmeal. I will have to try your recipe. Thanks.
