Strawberry Oatmeal with Granola

What to do with strawberries on the verge of being unusable?  I needed to use up some strawberries and had only a cup of oats left in the pantry so there you go…breakfast!  I usually do oatmeal kind of plain or with dried fruit…the usual suspects.  I figured why not?  This is sort of a take on strawberries and cream oatmeal without any of the guilt!

  • 2 Cups Water
  • 1 Cup Quick Oats
  • ½ Cup Granola of choice
  • 2 Tablespoons of Honey
  • ½ teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 10 Strawberries, sliced (or however many you like)
  • ¼ Cup Milk (I used soy)

First, bring the water to a boil and add the oats.  Once it begins to thicken (about a minute or so) squeeze in a couple of tablespoons of honey (or to taste), all but a tablespoon of granola, the cinnamon, and all but two strawberries.  Cook for about a minute or two more.

Finally, remove from heat and finish it off with the milk, stir to combine. 

Spoon the oatmeal into two bowls, top with remaining strawberries and granola and drizzle with a bit of honey (if desired).  Enjoy!

I looooooooove this oatmeal!  It has just enough sweetness and it is hearty enough to get you through the morning (with a cup of coffee of course)…give it try!
