Basics: Cinnamon Oatmeal

posted in: Recipes 0

My cinnamon oatmeal is another of my basic recipes. I really want to provide some everyday, simple meals that I eat all the time. I think the hardest part of managing a meal plan is making things that are simple yet flavorful, so this is one of my favorites. I truly eat this at least twice a week, I’m a sucker for brown sugar. The oatmeal cooks within 5 minutes, the brown sugar melts on top of the oatmeal and the milk adds a creaminess (and cools the oatmeal off.) Growing up, my mom would always make a well in the center of the oatmeal and add a ½ TB pat of butter. If you want to add, go for it, but I leave it out these days.
