Quick + Tasty Oatmeal

This quick + tasty oatmeal recipe is a great way to start your day!
I do mine on the stovetop since I have never successfully made it in the microwave.  My partner can do his in the microwave, and I'm not sure what kind of voodoo that is!
I make mine with 2% milk, but whole milk works just as well! Toppers that add a bit of zing are blueberries, strawberries, pomegranate arils (especially frozen ones - they cool the oatmeal a bit!) and brown sugar.

Servings 1


  • 1 small pot


  • 1 cup Milk I use 2% but whole milk works as well!
  • 1/2 cup Whole oats
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon


  • Add the milk, oats and cinnamon together in a medium pot on the stove.
  • Heat on medium-high and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  • Once at a rolling boil, turn heat down to medium and stir until the oatmeal is the consistency you prefer. Mine is usually 3-5 minutes.
