Oatmeal is a simple and classic breakfast item that everyone is familiar with. Its a quick mini meal to make and you can add in just about anything to make it taste good. I wouldn’t normally put a post up on something so simple considering most oatmeal is prepared and ready to go in a packet, all you do is add boiling water. When you make something from scratch using all fresh ingredients then its necessary to put up a post. This oatmeal is really good and just has to be shared.
Adding water to oatmeal is so damn boring. I believe in a thing called flavor country and water lacks that so I went with the milk version. Instead of milk I used almond milk because that’s really the only milk I drink. If you enjoy a bowl of oatmeal I recommend you try this recipe.
