“This is something that I've done for years in order to perk up my oatmeal without adding calories. It takes a few minutes, but is worth it. I came up with the idea when I was tiring of the taste of plain oatmeal.”
READY IN:

YIELD:
1 serving

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup plain oatmeal (of your choice, but follow the serving size on the package)
  • 1 cup water (again, follow the serving size on the package)

Directions

  1. Heat a medium skillet--I use cast iron--until it is medium hot to very hot.
  2. Put all of the oatmeal that you will be cooking in the pan.
  3. Stir constantly over medium high heat until oatmeal is just this side of dark brown. This gives it a nutlike flavor -- without the nuts and without the calories.
  4. Cook as per box instructions.
  5. You may add other cinnamon & sugar and/or raisins, but mind the calories.
