- ¼ cup quick oats
- ½ cup low-fat milk
- ½ cup frozen berries
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar (optional)
- 1 Tablespoon finely chopped nuts* (optional)
- Wash hands with soap and water. Place oats, milk, berries and brown sugar in a microwave-safe bowl.
- Microwave 1 ½ to 2 minutes until hot, stirring at least once. Watch mixture carefully so that it does not cook over the container.
- Top with nuts and enjoy!
*If serving to young children, chop nuts finely to reduce choking hazard.
Consider using a larger bowl or even a microwave-safe liquid measuring cup with "space" at the top to heat oatmeal if problems with overflowing occur. Adding berries after cooking oatmeal to help mixture to "cool down" is another option. Be careful when serving to young children to make sure that bowl and oatmeal are not too hot. You may consider placing oatmeal in another bowl before serving.
