Craisin Creamy Oatmeal

There was a definite chill in the air this AM!  Frost is already mentioned for tonight!  I guess it's time to pack away the comfy shorts and find those denim jeans.  Yes, it is mid September and it's right on schedule, but I'd rather not admit it!

While waking up to the cooler air, suddenly a bowl of creamy hot oatmeal came to mind.  O.K., last week during the 94° F day this idea would not have been good.  This AM = Yum!

Craisin Creamy Oatmeal is filled with old fashioned oats and is my fave cereal.  Adding those tasty dried cranberries to the oats along with Cinnamon, Nutmeg & Brown Sugar makes for a yummy, hearty breakfast!  Soy Milk works well for me, and also for this hot cereal.  I follow the basic directions on the Quaker Old Fashioned Oats canister, then add a little magic!  No Salt needed!

Craisin Creamy Oatmeal 
2 servings  

1 Cup Old Fashioned Oats
1- 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar, optional
1/4 Cup Craisins (Dried Cranberries)
1 and 3/4 Cup Soy Milk (or Milk)
1/8 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/8 Teaspoon Cinnamon

  1. Place all ingredients in a 2 quart sauce pot.
  2. Let stand 8- 10 Minutes.
  3. Heat to a boil over Medium heat.
  4. Stir & cook for 5 Minutes.
  5. Divide between 2 bowls.   
  6. Add additional Soy Milk (Milk) & enjoy!
***When the ingredients "sit" in the pot, the oats & Craisins soften resulting in creamy oatmeal.

Fiber & Calcium at breakfast is the best!

I'd love this for breakfast and need to buy Craisins. Just wish that I wouldn't be the only one who likes oatmeal here. It's a perfect healthy breakfast and "Yummy" is right! Have a good weekend, Judy!

Pam- Ocean Spray's Craisins from Costco is the way to go! That big bag does not last long here. Gives Oatmeal a great flavor. :)
