I saw this oatmeal on a recent episode of Paula Deen and boy did it sound yummy!!  Did you know that oatmeal is actually really healthy for you?  At least it is before you add all the yummy fixings to it!!  If you want to keep it super healthy, just add banana, low-fat milk and a little cinnamon to it before serving. I served mine the way Paula suggested, with a little cream, brown sugar, cinnamon and bananas and it was sooooo yummy!!  Let me just tell you, the banana is a must,  do not skip that ingredient.  

Some of the benefits of eating oatmeal are: 1.  Oatmeal may help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease.  2.  Oatmeal can help control your weight, because you feel fuller longer.  3.  The soluble fiber helps control blood glucose levels.  4. Oats (in the canister) are 100% natural and if you look at the ingredients the only thing listed is rolled oats.  5.  Oatmeal contains many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and is a good source of protein and iron.  6.  The fiber and other nutrients found in oatmeal may actually reduce the risk for certain cancers. (Note, I read the above information on various websites and on the canister of Quaker® oats, it is based on regular oats, not the instant packet kind that contains lots of sugar) 

If all of those health benefits didn't convince you to try this, then I don't know what would.  So, just give this oatmeal a try.  It is cheap to make and it is ready in under 10 minutes.  What a great way to start the day or to end the night!  I served my oatmeal with the best blueberry muffins I have ever had!           
Yummy Oatmeal
adapted from: Paula Deen

1/8 tsp. salt
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
    (not the instant or quick cooking kind)
3 1/2 cups water
For serving: banana slices, brown sugar, butter, heavy cream or milk, honey and cinnamon

In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil and add salt.  Stir in the oats and simmer until thickened, about 6-8 minutes.  Spoon into bowls and top with desired toppings.  Yield: 2-3 servings.  


  1. So you tease us with the muffins????? I love me some oatmeal!!! Looks like the perfect breakfast

  2. Derek always eats oatmeal in the morning...sometimes I try to gag it down. I will have to try this recipe though, because I'll bet I would like it.

  3. Agree with the previous person. Smoking cannabis is much better. In addition, health problems are widespread among many people, including me. In the past, I also had some problems in this area, but after a long care, everything is gone. However, my friend decided to recommend me to check CBD on this website https://joyorganics.com/collections/usda-certified-cbd-oil-tinctures where I found a suitable cannabis product for relaxation. Now I can say that the stress has been relieved and I am happy to recognize that.

  4. I went to a psychologist for quite a long time to find out the cause of my nervous breakdown and find a reliable solution for treatment. But it didn't give me the desired results. Then I started looking for a solution on my own and found the site https://westcoastsupply.cc/products/edibles/ where I bought myself a tgc edible and some cbd gummies. Everything was so easy. I took a course of such therapy and simply forgot about my panic attacks. Now I am healthy and absolutely happy.
