One of my favorite foods is oatmeal. I usually gussy it up with fruit and nut butters, but every once in awhile I like to keep it simple.
Cinnamon and brown sugar, such classic oatmeal toppings, are often neglected from my daily oats. A recent breakfast refreshed my memory of why they should reenter the rotation.
Just make sure the cap to the cinnamon jar is securely fastened, as a little bit goes a long way. However,I think there can never be too much brown sugar…
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
Boil milk and water on stove. Add oats, stirring occasionally until thickened. Upon serving, mix in toppings.
