Are you looking for a healthier version of breakfast for you or your children? Well it's probably sitting in your cupboard as you are sitting here reading this post.
Yes the Old Fashion Oats that you use for cookies! Forget the little flavored packages that need 1/2 cup of hot water. Have you read the ingredients in those? You may want to. Oatmeal has so many health benefits as well as keeping you fuller longer.
I make Old Fashion Oats for my kids. Make per instructions on the box. That Simple.
Here is Karen B's recipe:
1 Cup Old Fashion Oats (not instant)
2 Cups Water
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
Tiny pinch of Salt (optional)
Pat of Butter
Bring water to a boil, add Oats and reduce heat to low, add cinnamon and vanilla. Stir. Cover and cook five minutes until Oats are tender but not mushy.
Ladle into serving bowls, top with a pat of butter and locally grown honey ;)
You can also add raisins, nuts and berries.
Tip: Purchasing locally harvested honey is very important. It is known to help with seasonal allergies because the bees harvest honey from flowers in your area. If your area has orange blossoms your local honey bees will produce honey with from the orange blossoms which is a benefit to you.
If you purchase honey from California and you live in Michigan the honey won't help. Purchasing honey locally will also help your local economy.
