This is a basic recipe for the oatmeal I give DH in the mornings. He wanted something that will be healthier for him when he's training and get the good flax at the same time. I must admit that I really don't like oatmeal and will only eat this with lots of brown sugar and as a last resort. The ingredients are only basic amounts, I never measure so use your judgement and taste preferances. The ony thing I guess that might be nicer is that because I use whole flax seed, they tend to be a little hard and could be cooked for longer but again, use your preferances. I leave this mix in the freezer for quick use.

Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients well in a bowl.
  2. Store in freezer until ready to use.
  3. Mix 1/3 cup oatmeal with 2/3 cup water and microwave on high for 90 seconds. Stir and then microwave on high for another 90 seconds.
  4. After cooking we add any combo of the following: Brown sugar, maple syrup, dried fruits like cranberries, rasins, apricots or fresh fruit too.
