My Favorite Oatmeal Recipe

Photo By Laniecakes

When I have time, here is my favorite, yummy and healthy oatmeal recipe. On Sunday mornings, my kids and DH eat it up. In the spirit of the Recipe Swap Group, I thought I'd add it:


Kristen's Super Yummy Oatmeal

about 1 C slow-cooking oatmeal

about 1 C apple juice

about 1 C water

pat of butter

pinch of salt

cinnamon to taste

2-3 bananas (optional)


First, I put the liquids, butter, salt in a pot to simmer. Once it simmers, I add the oatmeal and cinnamon. I let it cook, partially covered, until the liquid gets absorbed and the oatmeal is nice and mushy. It takes about 30 minutes.

Before serving, I put 2 or 3 bananas in the Mini Chopper. (A food processor or hand masher would work fine, too.) I use the mashed bananas to top the oatmeal when I serve it. I pour a little milk on the oatmeal and serve.

Do you have any good oatmeal recipes?
