So, a couple days ago a friend of mine on facebook posted the article 15 Things White Girls Love to do on Facebook.
#7. Take picture of undeserving food with a picture. (featuring a relatively gruesome bowl of oatmeal). Well, not to be outdone I had to take a picture of a bowl of oatmeal BUT this oatmeal is TOTALLY deserving of a picture. It’s so much more than just oatmeal!
Mum’s Totally Awesome Amazing Oatmeal (Morgaine named it….I take no credit)
The trick to this oatmeal is to use old fashioned large flaked organic oats (you don’t want any of that icky quick oat mush). Instead of cooking the oats in water we use a 50/50 mix of almond milk and water (if I happen to have carnation evaporated milk I add a little, too). Almond flakes and raisins give it texture. Just a tad of brown sugar is added for sweetness and, of course, lots and lots of cinnamon. This is so yummy and nutritionally complete that even my husband says that after a long day of work he’d be happy to eat it as a meal.
Sooooooooo yummy! Who says oatmeal has to be boring?
