  1. Somehow, I have an entire can of coffee creamer... I don't even drink coffee!! So I set out to find recipes that called for pwodered creamer. I used old-fashioned oats, so I increased the cooking time a bit; and thawed frozen strawberries. Maybe it's because it wasn't French vanilla flavored, but I didn't notice that the creamer made this taste any different that regular oatmeal. It was still good, it just didn't CHANGE it any. I microwaved two strawberries too in step three, and sprinkled the third over that, but then decided it needed more sweetness so I added a couple of packets of Splenda, mixed it all up, and microwaved it for another twenty seconds. I didn't bother with the yogurt, either. Thanks for posting!
  2. Great breakfast! I only had old-fashioned oats so cooked a couple minutes longer. I added the strawberries after cooking and also added a little sugar. I served with a little lowfat milk and really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe!
  3. Made for Aus/NZ ~ Make My Recipe Edition 7. This was excellent oatmeal. I didn't have fresh strawberries (they didn't look very good for the price they wanted) so I used dried strawberries that I had and this turned out great. I also added 1 T of ground flax seed after the oatmeal was cooked to boost the nutrition. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting this Mandy.
  4. I have a bad habit of not eating breakfast but after trying this oatmeal I will be! Also used a few frozen strawberries that I put in a bowl and let thaw before microwaving the oatmeal. Added them for step #3 and spooned a large dollop of vanilla yogurt on top. Great low fat recipe! Thank you Mandy!
  5. This was so good. I made it as directed only I used the liquid coffee creamer instead of the powdered. It still came out perfect.

Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
