Heart Healthy Oatmeal

Heart Healthy Oatmeal created by Bonnie G 2

This is something that I've done for years in order to perk up my oatmeal without adding calories. It takes a few minutes, but is worth it. I came up with the idea when I was tiring of the taste of plain oatmeal.

Ready In:
8mins
Serves:
Yields:
Units:

ingredients

  • 12 cup plain oatmeal (of your choice, but follow the serving size on the package)
  • 1 cup water (again, follow the serving size on the package)

directions

  • Heat a medium skillet--I use cast iron--until it is medium hot to very hot.
  • Put all of the oatmeal that you will be cooking in the pan.
  • Stir constantly over medium high heat until oatmeal is just this side of dark brown. This gives it a nutlike flavor -- without the nuts and without the calories.
  • Cook as per box instructions.
  • You may add other cinnamon & sugar and/or raisins, but mind the calories.

    I loved this method. Admittedly, I botched the first round and over browned the oats and they started to smell a bit burnt. So I chucked that batch and started again. Yummy results and I'll definitely make it again. Thanks for the recipe!

    This was a wonderful surprise for our morning breakfast. It definitely tasted nuttier and I think alot better than just the plain oatmeal. Thanks for this idea! Made for PAC Spring 2012.

    I was very pleasantly surprised at the differance this method made in the taste of the oatmeal. I usded Steel Oats as that's what we prefer, and served with a sprinkle of cinnamon, teaspoon of brown sugar and a pat of butter. Made for a very pleasant breakfast on this cold morning. Even DH enjoyed and he doesn't usually eat oatmeal EVER. What a great idea you had I'll be doing this from now on. Made for Spring PAC 2011
