Stove top

Out of convenience and time I used to always make my oats in a bowl by just adding instant hot water (from the hot water tap) to my oats and stirring until mixed and cooked. It worked fine, tasted fine, and got the job done. Until a couple weeks ago I decided to make a single serving pot of oats on the stove top. Well that day changed everything and there is no going back.

It was actually quick and easy to make and takes only a few minutes. So today I used up the last of my hot cereals to make an amazing bowl of oats.
In the mix
2 TB. oat bran
2 TB. Bob's spice n nice hot cereal
2 TB. Bob's apple cinnamon hot cereal
1 cup water
few splashes almond milk
mix together and cook on low for about 5 min.
at the end I added 1/4 of a diced peach

Topped with
Crofter's raspberry all fruit spread
Sunflower nut butter
sprinkle of Yogi walnut spice granola

This bowl of oats was so perfect. The peach was one of the best all season. The oats on the stove top require much more water then my old way. Which results in a bigger portion then I'm used to. I think I will cut my portion down to just the 1/4 cup and omit the 2 TB.


  1. I agree, they don't cook as well just with the hot water tap. If you use the hot water, then put on the stove, they're done in a couple minutes. Well worth the extra step.

  2. That's what I do. I use the hot water tap and your right they are done so quickly.
