White Rose Child's Note:
Is anyone else as obsessed as I was with Nature's Path instant Flax n' Oats oatmeal? Well, worry no more if you run out! This one is a taste-alike with easy ingredients and can be mixed up ahead of time or super-fast!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1/3 cup rolled oats, plus
- 1 tablespoon rolled oats (or use quick oats, see note)
- 2 -3 teaspoons whole flax seeds
- 2 teaspoons unbleached cane sugar
- 1/16 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/3 cup boiling water, more if needed
- 1Notes on oats: I use a more finely-rolled, organic oat. Otherwise use quick oats or try grinding your rolled oats a bit.
- 2Mix together the first four ingredients. If doubling, tripling, etc., mix each in its own bowl / bag. I know this seems silly but if you do it all together and then divide into servings, the sugar and salt will end up mostly in the last one!
- 3If saving for future, keep in small containers or plastic baggies.
- 4When ready to eat, pour into a bowl. Add fully boiling water- start with 1/3 cup, and stir it well. If you like it thinner, add more just a spoonful at a time, stirring till you get the consistency you want.
- 5Cover and wait just a minute for the oats to soak up all the water. (This is optional, but reccommended.)
- 6Devour! I like to top mine with berries; stir in diced apple or pear BEFORE adding water; try different nuts, etc. This is just a base really, but a darn good one!
