My Favorite Healthy Bowl of Oatmeal

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 2 mins

Oatmeal is a healthy, warm and delicious breakfast and this is my favorite way to prepare it!UPDATE. I have recently started adding banana and almonds to my oatmeal instead of raisins. It is absolutely delicious. I replace the applejuice with water in that case.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients in a microwavable bowl.
  2. Stir and microwave on high for 1.5 to 2 minutes.
  3. Remove and stir. The mixture will be liquidy at first, but it should thicken up.
  4. If it doesn't microwave for an additional 20 seconds.
  5. Serve hot with a topping of yogurt if desired.
  6. UPDATE.
  7. If you want to try the almond, banana variant, just replace the apple juice with water, put the almonds in the mixture, microwave as usual, then add the mashed banana after the oatmeal is done cooking. (Do not add the banana before cooking!).

I ran our of my Instant and found this recipe. So easy to make. I thought this came out better than what I thought this would. So glad I chose to try this recipe. Will be making again.

This was not only creative, but yummy! I used Splenda brown sugar & will prob add a little Splenda next time for a little more sweetness! I left out the water, which gave me the perfect thickness. I added some chopped banana & microwaved for about 1 min (I only made half the recipe). Great flavor!
