oatmeal (4)Endless variations, really healthy and quick and easy to make. Nope I’ll never get bored of my oatmeal. (Why is it healthy? Click!) I’ll first post the simple basic recipe. Plain it is pretty boring and I  never eat it just like this but once you have the basic recipe you can add everything you feel like.

  • 2 – 2,5 dl milk (you can use whatever milk you want, normal, low fat, almond or soya. I mostly use the last one. Some people like to use just water for their oatmeal instead of milk, I don’t. It works just as good I just don’t really like the taste)
  • 1,5 dl oats (you can use both rolled or instant, want to know the difference? Click!)
  • Little pinch of salt
  • Anything you want to add
  • Put  the 2 dl milk in a pan and bring to boil
  • When it’s almost boiling or boiling reduce to medium heat and add oats. If you want to add some flaxseeds or chiaseeds do so now.
  • Stir while the liquid is dissolving
  • Add the pinch of salt, other spices you want to use and other additions like raisins.
  • Keep stirring until all the liquid is dissolved and the oatmeal is smooth and soft. If you like it to be more liquid you can add some more milk
  • Put it in a bowl, add toppings (If you’re adding fruit you can add them whenever you want depending how soft you want them, the earlier you add them the softer they get. When I for example use apples I add them right in the beginning after the milk because I want them to get hot and soft, when I use softer fruit like banana or peach I add it right after the oats but when it’s still cooking and when I use berries I add them right before I serve.)
