Maple Cinnamon Oatmeal


With this recipe, oatmeal is no longer bland. Now it’s delicious and nutritious!

Growing up, I loved the Quaker Brown Sugar Cinnamon instant oatmeal. As I got older, I realized that this delicious breakfast wasn’t necessarily as nutritious as I had hoped. So in my attempt to make my favorite childhood breakfast delicious and nutritious, I began experimenting with age-old oats. I realized that, like all delicious foods, there must be tasty balance of salt and sugar. YES—salt. I now make my oatmeal with a little sea salt and maple syrup. Try out this recipe for yourself, and you are sure to find a new attraction to heart-healthy oats.

Maple Cinnamon Oatmeal


1/3 cup quick oats

1 tablespoon grade B maple syrup (grade B has all the good nutrition still in it that grade A doesn’t)

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon raisins

7–10 almonds and/or other types of nuts or seeds

2/3 cup water


Combine all these ingredients and heat on the stove or in the microwave for 2 minutes. Another option is to prepare this the night before in a jar. I do this during the week so that, in the morning, I have only two steps—pour it into a bowl and heat it up.
