I just love this oatmeal and eat it almost every day. You can sprinkle it with some chopped nuts or seeds but then it won't be core.
- 1⁄2 cup rolled oats (quick or old-fashioned)
- 1 cup nonfat milk
- 1 cup frozen mixed berries
- sugar substitute
- Combine oats and milk.
- Heat on stove top at medium heat until mixture comes to a boil.
- Reduce heat simmer until thick, stirring occasionally.
- Add frozen berries and heat through.
- Season to taste.
This made a nice breakfast. I followed other reviewers and used half milk half water and added almond extract (1/8 teaspoon) - which really added something to this. Blackberries, cherries and cranberries were the only frozen fruit I had in the house, so that is what I used, and it worked out well (even the cranberries!). I like how the juice from the frozen berries comes out and colors and flavors the oatmeal.
I had this for lunch today and this recipe is excellent! I was curious about using milk to cook the oatmeal (as this is the way I cook grits) and it worked very well. I used organic skim milk, allowed it to come to a simmer, added the old fashioned oats, cooking and stirring until tender; then added 1/2 cup of frozen mixed berried (blueberries, blackberries and marrion berries), and stirred until defrosted. I added additional skim milk, a light sprinkling of cinnamon and some brown sugar to complete my delicious bowlful of oatmeal! I will definitely make this again, Dreamer in Ontario!
Yum! This is quick and easy, and the berries are a delicious way to dress up oatmeal. Thanks for sharing! Veggie Swap 56
