5-Minute Oatmeal- Raisin Cookie Treat

“Luckily for me, this invention satisfied my desperate raisin craving when the only cookies we had in the house were chocolate chip!”
READY IN:
5mins
SERVES:
1
YIELD:
1 snack!
UNITS:
US

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup rolled oats (generous, could try quick oats if you like)
  • 2 -3 teaspoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon raisins (your favorite kind- I like Thompsons)
  • 116 teaspoon salt (generous sprinkle)

Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl, while the kettle boils.
  2. Pour on 1/4-1/3 cup boiling water, give it a little stir, and cover with a plate for a few minutes to let the water be soaked up.
  3. Enjoy!
  4. Notes: this is just enough for a nice snack; if you want to have it for breakfast, you may want to double it. Or you could add other ingredients to power it up- I bet pumpkin seeds and/or flaxseeds would be good. It's even sweet enough to serve as a dessert. But hey, don't feel too guilty- there are definitely much less healthy things you could be eating!
