“A delicious, thick bowl of oatmeal that will make you wake up hungry every morning.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 34 cup quick oats
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 12 cup cottage cheese
  • 12 cup berries (optional) or 12 cup mashed bananas (optional) or 12 cup raisins (optional) or 12 cup canned pumpkin (optional) or 12 cup chopped fruit (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (brown sugar is nice instead, and splenda works too to keep it healthy)
  • 12 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 18 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 12 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds (optional) or 2 tablespoons chopped pecans (optional) or 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts (optional)


  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, lightly beat the egg and add the oats, milk, fruit, sugar, and cottage cheese.
  2. Stir well then microwave on high for 2 minutes.
  3. Stir well again and microwave for another minute.
  4. Keep repeating stirring and microwaving at 1 minute intervals atleast 3 times, until oatmeal becomes thick or to desired consistency. (I like mine really thick, almost pudding-like).
  5. Remove and add vanilla, nuts, cinnamon, and nutmeg. (A few dashes of fround ginger and/or cloves is good too if you want to change it up).
  6. Stir and enjoy!
