Speedy Oatmeal Recipe

1 serving

This is more than just an oatmeal recipe. It is a system for putting together a complete, healthy breakfast in just 7 minutes. 

oatmeal breakfast
16 oz water

3 1/2 oz old fashioned rolled oats

4 oz frozen blueberries
4 oz frozen raspberries
1 Tbsp flax seed, ground

Turn burner on high so it will heat up while you get the water ready. (This is not necessary if you have a gas range.)

In a small nonstick saucepan, weigh water. Put pan on burner, cover, and bring water to a boil.

In your cereal bowl, weigh rolled oats.

When water boils, remove lid and stir in oats. Reduce heat to medium and set a timer for 5 minutes. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally. Keep an eye on the pot so it doesn't boil over.

In your cereal bowl, weigh frozen blueberries and raspberries. Grind flax seeds in a small coffee grinder. Sprinkle them over the berries and brush out the grinder with a pastry brush.

When timer goes off, pour cooked oats into your cereal bowl on top of the berries and flax seeds. The hot cereal will thaw the berries and moisten the flax seeds.

Comments: There is enough water in this recipe to make the oatmeal moist without milk. If desired, top it with a little non-dairy milk. You can use other frozen fruit or sliced fresh fruit. You can use a few walnuts instead of the flax seeds. To double the recipe, use a medium-sized pot and reduce the amount of water a little.
