1/2 cupmilk of choice or more water(dairy, non-dairy, nut)
Pinch of salt
mini chocolate chips
milk or cream (splash)
coconut milk, creamer (splash)
Brown Sugar Cinnamon
In a small saucepan, combine the oats, water, milk, and salt over medium-high heat.
Once it comes to a low boil, reduce the heat and let simmer until it reaches your desired thickness. Stir occasionally to keep the oatmeal from burning on the bottom of the pan.
After the oatmeal has cooked through for about 5 minutes, remove the pan from the heat.
Add desired toppings and a splash of additional milk if you would like.
1 cup of liquid is the amount needed for this recipe. It can be all water, all milk, or 1/2 cup of each. When cooking oatmeal, it is a 1:2 ratio of oats to liquid. Milk will help give it a creamier texture.Also, a lot of recipes call for the liquid to come to a boil before adding the oats. I have found that step isn't necessary. I think the texture turns out just as great, if not better when it's all brought to a boil together.
