First Bites Cookbook: Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal

Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal
I’ve made oatmeal this way so many times I had to write up the recipe. It has all the sweet goodness of sticky bun, but it is a much healthier way to start your day. For easy morning time prep, make plain oatmeal ahead and store in the fridge. Microwave to reheat and then pile on the toppings.

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 teaspoons brown sugar
1 ½ cups rolled oats
¼ cup raisins
¼ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Low-fat milk or soy milk (optional)

In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar—set aside. Prepare oats with water according to package directions. Top with cinnamon sugar, walnuts, and raisins; stir. Finish with a splash of milk or soy milk, if desired.

Yield: 3 cups
