Oatmeal Fruit Cobbler
Sunday, January 10, 2016
Its the middle of January and we finally have some colder temperatures. I'm not a fan of cold weather but the sooner it comes, the sooner it will go and spring will spring.
Since it's cold outside, I love to have a warm breakfast. Ok, I like any kind of breakfast anytime but that's beside the point. Today I'm going to share with you one of my favorite quick breakfast.
I call it "Oatmeal Fruit Cobbler".
Its so good, its like getting a hug from Jesus. Well sure, nothing could be that good but you get what I mean.
Are you ready? Grab a small bowl or mug. Yea this a personal meal. All to yourself.
All you need is Quaker instant oatmeal (single packs) and about a 1/4 cup of juicy fruit or berries. The choice is yours. The best flavor of oatmeal to use is the non fruity kind such as brown sugar, maple, or in my case today, apple and cinnamon.
In a small bowl, throw in your fruit.
Pour the whole pack of oatmeal over top
Add 3 tablespoons of water. Just sprinkle the water all around, to moisten the top.
Yep that's all the water you need. Just ignore the directions on the pack. The fruit makes up the rest of the liquid. You'll see.
Microwave for a minute and a half.
Let it cool a couple minutes or the fruit will blister your tongue.
Top with whip cream, powder sugar, or ice cream. Again, the choice is yours.
The texture becomes moist and a little chewy like moms homemade fruit cobbler.
If you want to take the time to bake it, it may even become crisp.
Its filling therefore you will not want to snack all morning. You can go throughout the day knowing you just had a low calorie healthy breakfast that will make your heart smile as well.
