As part of the No Cold Cereal Challenge  last week, I made this oatmeal…inspired by one of those instant packet oatmeals that I’ve seen at the store.
But I guarantee this tastes better!!!
I still have some pecans leftover from the holidays…and my *free* maple syrup from Amazon  (using Amazon credit from Swagbucks )…and some marked down oats (paired with a coupon of course!)…using inexpensive ingredients with some pricier ones, like pecans, still keeps the overall cost down!
Simple, nutritious and hearty!!!
4 cups water
2 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup pecans, chopped
1/3-1/2 cup maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like your oatmeal)
Cream or milk, optional
See for yourself…
Makes 4 hefty servings.
Up next…Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal!
