Dress up your Oatmeal

We all agree that Oatmeal is one healthy easy energizing breakfast. When I have no big plans for breakfast and/or when i am in rush I always rely on Oatmeal microwavables, (Thanks to Quaker Oatmeal Singles) they make it much more easier. I am lucky that my kids are in love with this quickie breakfast too. Of course I always dress it up with fruits, nuts and honey to make it more appealing for kiddos.  See below how i Dressed it up....
Fruit and Nut Oatmeal
Quaker Oatmeal Single  - 1
Green apple cubes - 1/4 cup
Red Apple cubes - 1/4cup
Dry Cranberries - 1 Tbsp
Chopped Pecans - 2 Tbsp
Honey - 1 Tbsp
Milk - 2 Tbsp

How to Make it:

  • You can use your favorite flavor,  I have used Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal single ( which is our family's fav).
  • Follow the directions and cook the oatmeal in microwave for 2 min.
  • Add milk and mix it for the desired consistency. Add honey and mix it well. 
  • Then top it with apple cubes, cranberries and pecans.

Ta Daaaaa! The wholesome yummy and healthy breakfast bowl is ready in minutes. Hmmm, Yum! Yum! while the milk makes it little creamier, honey does the justice to your sweet teeth, fruits and nuts add crunchiness and the dried cranberries gives the whole new taste to this oatmeal that you will make it more often.

Did i ever tell you the McDonald's Oatmeal is the inspiration for my click and for this post? Yes it is. :-)

1. I usually add milk for kiddos. If you want it light, you can skip milk.
2. Why only Pecans? Not such a rule, Experiment with Walnuts and Almonds too.
3. If you are like me, prefer less sweet, skip the Honey part, Maple Brown Sugar flavor already has enough sweet.Or if you try with original flavor, then honey makes it perfect.

Hope this makes your morning cheerful, light and full. See you next time.


  1. The day I make my oatmeal sweet I will make it look like your picture. Beautiful clicks.

  2. I'm happy to know that your kids love oats. Lovely presentation.
