Simple Oatmeal with Raisins and Cinnamon

Every morning is a good morning for oatmeal. Rolled oats are a great budget food option to keep in your pantry. You can make so much with them from cookies, to milk, sweet or savory oatmeal, and more! This recipe is the bare bones basic oatmeal recipe so feel free to add additional toppings like raisins, dates, or fresh fruits.


Yield: 1 serving


3/4 cup rolled oats
1 1/2 cups water
1 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of salt (optional)
1 tbsp. raisins


Bring a small pot with the water up to a boil, stir in the oats and turn down the heat to medium. Stir and cook for 5-7 minutes until thickened and oats are cooked through.

Take off heat and stir in cinnamon and salt if using, cover and let sit a few minutes to cool and thicken up more.

If the mixture is too thick just add a little more water and stir.

Add any toppings you like and enjoy.
