Ok, so, I can’t take credit for the originality of this clever idea for oatmeal. I saw it on Pinterest courtesy MyFitnessPal.com, a site designed to help people lose weight in a healthy manner. While their idea is probably healthier for you, I found it a little bland and tweaked it to be a little more “me” in terms of flavor. And, once it’s finished cooking, I actually stir it up in the mug and eat it that way, but, showing a glob of oatmeal cooked in a coffee-cup is somehow more intriguing, no?
¼ cup Quick Oats
2 T Milk
Between 1 tsp. and 1 T Brown Sugar (around there anyways, I don’t really measure some things when I cook)
Cinnamon (again, I didn’t measure this…a little more than a sprinkle)
Handful of berries or other fruit
Add ingredients to coffee mug. Stir thoroughly (I like to stir then add my berries, but, to each her own). Microwave for between 60 and 90 seconds (I find 1:10 my ideal cooking time).
So good!!!! Enjoy!!!
