Creamy Cinnamon Oatmeal

Creamy Cinnamon Oatmeal

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • dash salt
  • 2 packets of Splenda
  • cinnamon (to taste)
This is almost as quick to make as oatmeal from a packet and it tastes better. I found it was especially good with a splash of milk and some chopped pecans. I used 1 Tablespoon of sugar instead of the Splenda and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon which I mixed in with the oats instead of adding it like a garnish. I found that it had a pleasant sweetness with the minimal amount of sugar, but some people might find that it needs more - which is easy enough to add at the end. My final verdict: I liked this oatmeal very much. It took two minutes to prepare and then I smiled for 6 minutes as I ate it. (This recipe was submitted in September 2014.

Note From Recipe Submitter:

Make sure to use only a tiny dash of salt. Otherwise, the salt will cancel out the sweetness of the Splenda, and not taste good with the cinnamon.

When made with skim or 1% milk, this oatmeal only has about 200 calories. It is also more filling than the instant oatmeal packets.

A 200 calorie, microwave oatmeal that uses a combination of milk and water to cook the oats so they have maximum creaminess.
