How To Make Old Fashioned Oats

My recommendation is either stove top or microwave. Stove top is going to take around 10-15 minutes with some stirring. Microwave is super quick and required little fuss. 

How to Make Oatmeal Taste Good

We’ve all been there, eating plain old boring oatmeal. Oatmeal on it’s own doesn’t have much flavor, but by adding a few key ingredients, you can bring your morning oatmeal to life fast and easy.

While cooking oatmeal add a pinch of salt, vanilla extract, and spices like cinnamon or nutmeg to give it a punch of flavor. Other flavor packed ingredients include: fresh fruit, granola, honey/syrup, dried fruit, dark chocolate chips, and nut butters. Adding these ingredients not only make your oatmeal delish, it adds a ton of nutritional value as well.

Naturally Sweeten Oatmeal

Making sure you have a sweetener is the most important things for oatmeal. My favorite ways to use as a naturally sweetener is honey, agave, maple syrup, and coconut sugar. You can also use fresh fruit like bananas, berries, and dried fruit. 

This banana oatmeal is packed with whole foods rich in fiber, antioxidants, and potassium. Enjoy for breakfast to keep yourself fueled and nourished for any day of the week!
