I think we can all agree oatmeal is good for us. And who doesn't love a nice bowl of hot oatmeal on a cold morning?
My kids love those little instant packs of oatmeal. You know, the ones that are way over sweetened with who knows what and a lot of it? Yeah, again, I thought I was doing good. I figure they're better than Coco Puffs. But I could be wrong.
I recently tossed those instant packs (ok, so actually we finished eating them) and I've started making the real deal. Better oatmeal - steel-cut or old fashioned rolled oats. Add some fruit and/or nuts and yum! A favorite around here is to add dehydrated apples from the food storage supply. They soften in the hot water or milk and sweeten the oatmeal. We add a little cinnamon and breakfast disappears. Almost as fast as it does on Sugar Cereal Saturday. :)
And oatmeal is not just for breakfast. It's in granola, muffins, even cookies.
