No need for those little instant packets! Microwaving your own oats is super easy without being loaded on sugar; plus, homemade microwave oatmeal is far cheaper than the prepackaged stuff. A bowl of this instant oatmeal is comforting, filling, and simple enough for a child to make after school.
1/2 cup uncooked old-fashioned regular rolled oats
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup whole milk
Pinch of table salt
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons unsalted butter
Fresh fruit and toasted nuts, optional
How to Make It
Combine oats, water, milk, and salt in a small bowl, and stir well. Microwave 2 minutes. Stir in brown sugar and butter. Top with fresh fruit and nuts, if desired.
