Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal

(1 serving)

  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 dash salt
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon raisins or other dried fruit - chopped (optional)
In a large microwave-safe bowl, mix the oats, water and salt. Microwave for 90 seconds and stir. Stir in the maple syrup, brown sugar and optional dried fruit and microwave 60 seconds longer.

Serve with a pat of butter and a splash of milk.

In place of dried fruit, you could also toss a small handful of your favorite fresh fruit on the finished oatmeal.

This is a quick maple and brown sugar oatmeal recipe for one person. It tastes so much better then the oatmeal from the packets. I hope you'll like it!
