5 Minute Homemade Brown Sugar n Cinnamon Oatmeal with Apples

This time of year one of my favorite things to have for breakfast is oatmeal.  When I was growing up I use to eat Cream of Wheat constantly, remember those individual instant packets? I believe they still make them, but I do not buy them.  Instead, we make our own oatmeal because we always have those huge containers of Quaker Oats on hand for baking.  I love that Quaker has both a Quick Oats and an Old Fashioned Oats.

The Old Fashioned Oats are good for baking, such as cookies, because it holds up and does not cook down as much. The Quick Oats are what we use for this recipe.  Gone are the days where my grandmother needed to get up at 5 a.m to make us homemade oatmeal before school. Now, I can whip this up while the girls are getting ready and have them washed, dressed, fed and out the door in less than an hour.  Try this recipe below and you will see what I mean!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of Quaker Quick 1 Minute Oats

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

Mixing well to make sure all ingredients are combined.  This should take less than 3 minutes, do not walk away.   Serve immediately with a dash of cinnamon and an apple slice.  Remember, oatmeal is brain food and very good for heart health, it is one of the best things to serve your kids before school!
