My Favorite Quick Oatmeal


  • ⅓ Cup Quick Cooking Rolled Oats
  • ⅔ Cup Water
  • 2 t. Almond Butter
  • 2 T. 50% Less Sugar Craisins
  • Pinch of Salt
I love the baby measuring cup I found at Target to measure 2 tablespoons….


Place oatmeal in bowl. Add water. Microwave for 1 Min and 30 sec. Add Almond Butter, Craisins and a pinch of salt. Allow to sit for 30 seconds or so until almond butter starts to melt, stir and enjoy.

Jar Version to Make Ahead:

I like to make this version when I have to go into the office. Some coworkers will look at you like you are crazy and some will think you are brilliant and ask you for the recipe.

Add all ingredients except for water to a jar with a lid. Place in refrigerator until ready to eat. Use the hot water spigot from the coffee machine, water cooler, or microwave regular water in a cup for 1 minute 30 seconds until very hot. Add hot water to jar. Allow to sit for a few minutes until water absorbs into the oats. Stir and enjoy.
