Quick Oatmeal: My go-to recipe

Quick Oatmeal

Some of you might know that I have moved to Edmonton in Canada two months ago. Even though this is an exciting time in my life, I’m missing my home, my family, my animal friends, and… my kitchen. No more fancy kitchen tools, and only one set of plates, zero linens, and zero props. Nevertheless, I decided to post my go-to recipe for oats. A simple recipe goes well with simple pictures, right?

This recipe for quick oatmeal is frequented quite highly over here, especially since the temperatures dropped to -15°C this week. Sadly, the smoothie season is done and over. The oats are done in 10 minutes max, taking into account that you’re still a bit sleepy. I especially love cinnamon and raisins in my warm oats, paired with maple syrup and some tangy fruits. Fresh fruits are getting scarce this time around, so I’m relying heavily on frozen fruit. I prefer berries in my oatmeal, but pretty much anything goes!

    1. Hi Jennifer, thanks for the comment! Have you tried steelcut oats in the slow cooker? I would imagine this to be pretty good. I really like your website by the way. I have been desperate to see a bear, but so far no luck. Your wildlife cameras made up for it at least a little bit. Best, Sonja
