Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal

Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 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!

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Bennett for this recipe.

Yum! This oatmeal is delicious! I like my oatmeal sweet so I added extra sugar and syrup.

This oatmeal is amazing! I even messed up a little... Oops. I didn't have maple syrup and I'm to stubborn for directions. Regardless, it turned out great!

I tried it with 2 teaspoons of private selection pure dark amber maple syrup and milk in place of water and it was amazing. Me and my daughter shared a serving. The sweetness was spot on perfect. I find the packet oatmeal to be a little too sweet for my taste. My 19 month old is very picky and even she liked it. She started fussing and crying for more after the first bite.

I just made this and it is delicious. It reminds me of when I was little. I mean, sure I like mine with a little more brown sugar and syrup but it's great!

Much better than the packets! Be sure to drizzle just a little more syrup on at the very end for the ultimate flavor. Great!

This is a really nice recipe. I add a pat of butter in the end and an extra sprinkle of brown sugar. It's almost as easy and quite a bit better than oatmeal from packets.

Found it a little bland - went back and added a dash of cinnamon and it made it much better!

Really yummy! The only thing I'd do differently next time is to reduce the water to 3/4 cup. It was a little more watery than I usually like.
