Strawberry Cinnamon Oatmeal

This is just a little something I concocted this morning in lieu of how chilly it is outside (yes yes I know 50 degrees isn't very cold, but it is for florida). It combines my two favorite things--cinnamon and strawberries!

Directions

  1. Combine the oats and water in a bowl, stir and add about half the Equal and cinnamon.
  2. Microwave for 1 minute.
  3. Stir, then add in the strawberries and stir again.
  4. Microwave for 1 more minute.
  5. Stir again and add in the remainder of the Equal and the cinnamon.
  6. Microwave again for 1 minute. (It should be done at this point, but depending on your microwave or how gooey you like your oatmeal you can heat it longer).
  7. Enjoy!

Cinnamon and strawberries are an interesting combination! I used old fashioned oats, frozen strawberries, and about half a tablespoon of cinnamon. I initially used two packets of Splenda, but later added two more because the cinnamon flavor was just too strong. I stopped microwaving it thirty seconds into the third minute, because it reached a good consistency for me. Thanks for posting.

Yum! I used blackberry jam instead of Equal, just a sprinkle of cinnamon, and did not cook the strawberries. Delicious! Cooked it 1.5 minutes total.

This is my favorite favorite thing to eat, every night before bed! I use oat ban instead of oats, and lots more berries though. I also like to add a bit of banana extract sometimes. I use Stevia herb instead of Equal to sweeten. MMMMMM!
