How Do You Make Oatmeal?

Quick-cooking oats have been precooked then dried and rolled. They are sometimes labeled “instant oats.”

Stovetop: Bring 1 cup water (or nonfat or low-fat milk) and a pinch of salt (if desired) to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in 1/2 cup oats and reduce heat to medium; cook for 1 minute. Remove from the heat, cover and let stand for 2 to 3 minutes.

Microwave: Combine 1 cup water (or nonfat or low-fat milk), 1/2 cup oats and a pinch of salt (if desired) in a 2-cup microwavable bowl. Microwave on High for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Stir before serving.

The toasted coconut adds such a great texture to your oatmeal. Pour some shredded coconut into a large skillet over medium high heat. After about 2 minutes, stir and toast all sides until golden and beautiful. So good!
