I'm not much of a juice drinker but one morning I had a revelation and thought "Hey, why don't I try cooking oatmeal with some juice?" we had some cranberry juice so I decided to use that.
Oh my, was it ever marvelous! Honestly it was all I could think about every morning and I haven't gone a week without making it since!
The juice adds extra taste and sweetness to the oats, bringing it to a whole new level.
|Oatmeal with whipped cream just for fun|
1/3 cup quick oats
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup water
ground flax seeds (optional)
Combine oats and liquids in a saucepan over high heat and bring to a boil.
Reduce to medium heat and add dried cranberries and ground flax seed.
Cook for a few minutes until all liquid is absorbed, stirring frequently
Remove from heat and if desired sprinkle some more dried cranberries on top or drizzle on some extra cranberry juice.
* If you are on a gluten free diet, ensure that the oats are labelled gluten free.
