Old-fashioned oatmeal 2 ways
SmartPoints® value per serving
Love oatmeal but never made it from scratch? It's super simple and so easy using either your stovetop or microwave. Make a big batch and reheat for several days in a row, or make it fresh each morning. Vary the toppings depending on what you like and what you have on hand. Think beyond fresh fruit and a sprinkling of sugar and/or cinnamon: Chopped candied ginger, toasted coconut, slivered almonds, chia seeds, and granola all make tasty toppings.
Uncooked rolled oats
- Stovetop method: Bring water and salt to a boil in a small saucepan set over medium heat. Stir in oats. Cook, stirring occasionally until water is absorbed and oats are tender, about 5 minutes.
- Microwave method: Combine water, salt, and oats in a 2-cup microwavable bowl. Microwave on High until water is absorbed and oats are tender, 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Stir and let stand 1 minute.
