Maple Pecan Oatmeal

Posted By Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom On January 28, 2010 @ 9:12 am In Breakfast,Dairy Free,Recipes | 22 Comments

As part of the No Cold Cereal Challenge [5] 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 [6] (using Amazon credit from Swagbucks [7])…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!
