I go on oatmeal kicks every now and then. I’ll eat it almost every day for a few weeks, and then I won’t eat it for a month. I’m wierd I guess. When I’m eating it though, I like to try different add-ins to keep it from being boring. Here’s my latest creation – I was inspired by, believe it or not, McDonald’s new Fruit and Maple Oatmeal.
Here’s what you need:
Oatmeal, water, an apple, dried cranberries, golden raisins, brown sugar and splenda. If you want that maple flavor, add a tsp of maple extract. I was out the day I made this, but I know it would taste even better with the maple flavor added!
Combine the oatmeal, fruits, and sugars.
Add water and stir.
Cook for 2-3 minutes in the microwave. Add more water if desired.
