Perfect Microwave Oatmeal for One

I used to fix myself hot oatmeal every day, even when I was working. I guess I'm lazier now, and not willing to clean that pot day after day. SO, after much trial and error, I figured out how to do it right in the ce4ereal bowl, in the microwave. Pre-loading single servings -- everything but the water -- into snack-size zip bags make this an even quicker way to have my oatmeal any day I want it.

  1. Put everything into a microwave safe bowl. You need one deep enough to avoid boil-over messes.
  2. Microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes.
  3. Stir and eat with a little milk and a sliced half banana. Yum!

Very good oatmeal recipe. I added 6 oz. of water, and still felt it needed more. That was the only thing I would change. I swapped out the raisins for chopped up prunes. The combination of cinnamon, a little bit of brown sugar and walnuts were so good.

Great recipe, easy to follow and delicious! I skipped the nuts and swapped maple syrup for brown sugar. Will make often. Thanks!!

I made this oatmeal for my son. He likes it with more brown sugar on top. He wanted more raisins and no nuts. That's a really great recipe that I'll do often even for myself but with pecans probably. Thanks Meredith :) Made for PAC Spring 2010
