Bedtime Oatmeal

READY IN: 4mins
Recipe by Rainbow*Bubbles

This isn't really a recipe, it's more an idea which worked really well. I find it hard to get to sleep, but don't like having a hot drink before I go to bed because I end up waking up a couple of hours later then can't get back to sleep. I love the taste of Horlicks (malted milk) though, and find it really relaxing, and oats are meant to help you sleep so I tried adding it to a bowl of oatmeal and it tasted really yummy! It's a lot cheaper than buying flavoured oatmeal too, and you can add any type of malted milk/hot chocolate powders to it, or even flavoured milkshake (my brother likes banana Nesquik with cinnamon). Have fun trying it out!

Tasty, even in the afternoon! This was a nice warm dish that warmed up this snowy day. Made for Fall PAC 2012. Thanks Rainbow*Bubbles! :)
