custard oatsPosted: January 27, 2011
We love oatmeal. It’s filling, full of fiber and CHEAP! This is a healthy oatmeal recipe that is easy to make ahead. I make it on Sunday, store it in tupperware, then pour over 1/2 cup of skim or almond milk over top and microwave for about 1- 1 1/2 minutes, or until hot when I’m ready to eat. You can top as you wish, but I like mine pretty simple with some cinnamon and a drizzle of maple syrup.
A lot of you were unexpectedly impressed with our oatmeal bar last year, and this is just another twist on making your everyday oatmeal EXTRA filling!
Thanks to Holly, The Healthy Everythingtarian for this recipe idea!
Combine 1 cup oats, 2 cups water and 2 whole eggs in a medium sized sauce pan.
Whisk all ingredients together until mixed.
Heat on medium-low and whisk for the majority of cooking time. Keep whisking so the oatmeal stays smooth and you’ll see the oatmeal start thickening up. Remove from heat and pour into 2 bowls or tupperwares for future use.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and 1 Tbsp brown sugar or maple syrup and 1/2 cup milk.
(If making ahead, pour milk over oats and microwave for about 1.5 – 2 minutes)
