How to make Oatmeal Recipe

This creamy oatmeal recipe is a basic recipe using oatmeal, milk, cinnamon, and water. The trick to making it creamy lies in the timing with which you add the ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 Cinnamon stick
  • 1 cup Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1 cup of milk*
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Sugar optional

Instructions

  • Place the two cups of water and the cinnamon stick in a medium-size saucepan and turn the heat to high.
  • Afterward, the water starts boiling, add the Old Fashioned Oats and reduce the heat to medium. Cook for five minutes.
  • After the five minutes, pour in the milk and stir well. Keep cooking for five more minutes, stirring from time to time to keep the oatmeal from sticking to the saucepan.
  • Eventually, the oatmeal will become thick and creamy, then remove from the heat. Serve it in bowls, sprinkle with some ground cinnamon, and sweeten with your sweetener of choice (I recommend dark brown sugar).

GOOD ADDITIONS TO YOUR OATMEAL INCLUDE CHOPPED APPLES, PECANS, AND BANANAS.

    Notes

    • * If you want your oatmeal to be more watery, add ¼ cup more milk.
    • *To sweeten your oatmeal, you can use regular sugar or dark brown sugar. I personally like to add dark brown sugar at the serving time.
    • * Please, if you are lactose intolerant, use a lactose-free milk.  Or, you can substitute regular milk for a vegan version like oat, almond, or soy milk.
