HI THERE!!!! Well, As promised I’m writing this blogpost on my Grandma’s delicious oatmeal. I know it sounds crazy saying my Grandma makes the BEST oatmeal but it is the truth. My cousin and I have been trying to master it for a little while. And I’m almost there. WooHoo!!! I asked my Grandma who I call “Nanny” what’s the secret and the one thing she told me was to cook it slowly. So here’s a slightly revised version of the recipe.I usually make this while I’m getting ready for work or on days I’m working from home because the key is slowly cooking the oatmeal.
For 1 serving a half cup of oats ( I like the all natural whole Grain Old fashioned oats) with a little less than a cup of water on medium low heat for 10 minutes.
And then I add 3 quarters of a cup of milk and turn it to a medium heat for about 7 minutes. And then I add 1-2 teaspoons of real vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon if you like it sweeter 9 Like my Nanny) add more sugar. I like to watch my sugar intake. And for the last 3 minutes have it on high. I add nuts and fruit for extra vitamins and protein and because I love it. Let me know if you try this recipe and if you like it. And thanks for stopping by.
