Homemade Oatmeal - Maple Brown Sugar

My favorite season is making it's debut here in the south and the Williams Kitchen is hopping with fall recipes! My favorite Fall breakfast is warm oatmeal. For a long time I just bought the Quaker Instant stuff but this is so much better.

The flavor and texture is just awesome and there is nothing more nourishing than a warm bowl of oatmeal. There are so many good-for-you things in this bowl. I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Some tips:
  • This recipe is so versatile add whatever you have on hand or love.
  • If you need a quick breakfast make a big batch and throw it in the fridge. Then just take out a serving at a time, add some milk to loosen it up and microwave it.
  • If the oatmeal is too thick add more milk
  • If sweet isn't your thing, omit the maple syrup or cut the brown sugar in half

Here's my version

Brown Sugar Maple Oatmeal

Servings 4-5

3 3/4 cups water
2 cups rolled oats
1 pinch salt
4 teaspoons butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp maple syrup (the good stuff)
4 tablespoons milk

  1. Bring water to a boil and add oats. Turn heat down to med and stir until thickens (it will thicken more as it cools) about 5-7 mins.
  2. Add butter, brown sugar, and maple syrup and stir. At this point you can let it finish cooling and toss it in the fridge.
  3. To serve place one serving into a bowl and stir in milk. (if from the fridge microwave a minute or so).
  4. Top with raisins and walnuts.
