What do you need?
How to make?
2/3 to 1 cup oatmeal
1 3/4 cup water
about 1/4 tsp. salt
3-4 T peanut butter
Some people like this with a sprinkle of ground cinnamon, but I never use that.
Put 2/3 to 1 cup oatmeal in a 4-cup glass measuring cup and sprinkle with salt. Stir in 1 3/4 cup warm water, or slightly more, depending on how thick you like your finished oatmeal. Stir. Microwave for two minutes on high, remove from microwave and stir. Continue to microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring after each 20 seconds, until oatmeal reaches the desired consistency. The oatmeal in these photos was cooked for three minutes, but you may prefer it slightly more chewy or softer, so experiment to get the consistency you like. Be sure to use a container with high sides or the oatmeal will boil over when you get to the end of the cooking time. Remove oatmeal and add Adams 100% Natural Peanut butter . letting it melt for a minute or so and then stirring into the oatmeal. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon if desired. Serve hot. Recipe can be cut in half or increased as desired.
