When I was a kid, my favourite breakfast Instant Quaker Oatmeal--apple and cinnamon. My sister used to eat it dry, right out of the package--do you still do that Lisa?? :)
In my quest to find things made with a little less additives and preservatives (and of course easier on the pocket book..) I developed this easy to make Microwave Oatmeal--it is even faster than the Instant Quaker--that is if you are waiting for the kettle to boil!
1/3 cup quick cooking rolled oats (**not "old-fashioned, make sure they are quick cook)
2/3 cup water
pinch or 2 cinnamon
1 apple chopped finely
In a microwave safe bowl with cover, combine all ingredients except sugar. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Remove and top with as much sugar and/or milk that you like. That's it--so easy!
Tip: you can substitute raisins or raspberries or just about any other fruit that you like for this one! Great topped with nuts or dried fruit or even just a little jam instead of the sugar...
