Cinnamon Raisin Grape-Nuts Oatmeal

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/4 cup Grape-Nuts cereal
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • cream or additional milk - for serving
I LOVED this addition of the Grape-Nuts to a bowl of oatmeal. It gave regular oatmeal more of a baked flavor... with a warm earthiness. The overall taste reminded me of cinnamon bread more than anything. The Grape-Nuts break down into an oatmeal-like texture, so don't expect the customary crunch you get from that cereal. I was surprised that I enjoyed this microwave dish as much as I did. It's one of my favorite oatmeal tests that I've done this year. Trust me: This is an interesting take on oatmeal that's worthy of a try. (Recipe submitted in 2002. It was tested and photographed in September 2013.)

Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal With Grape-Nuts

Word of warning!

After 2 minutes and 15 seconds in the microwave, this oatmeal starts to thicken and goes from a soupy texture to a more welcome oatmeal texture. At this point, you can get bubbling that will splatter in your microwave. Left unattended, the whole thing can boil over. Take my advice... as you can see, I made the mistake so you won't have to... after 2 minutes of cooking, keep a close eye on the oatmeal. If it's starting to bubble, stir and continue cooking in 10 second intervals until thickened to your liking.

Oatmeal Explosion!

Agreed! Oatmeal eaters should always have a box of Grape-Nuts around. It takes it to a new and better level that's hard to describe. Grape-Nuts has always been just an okay cereal to me. But when you add them with oatmeal... that's why God invented Grape-Nuts. I find that half Grape-Nuts and half quick oats (never Old Fashioned) always works for me. Love it.
