My daughter goes absolutely nutso for this stuff.  It is so incredibly delicious, quick and simple to make and is a million times more inexpensive and healthful than those preservative-filled, sugar-loaded flavored packs available at the grocery store.  A perfect cozy breakfast for this getting-too-cool-for-my-liking time of year.

Cinnamon Spice Oatmeal

*notes: be sure to use gluten free oats if you would like to make this dish truly gluten free.  also, as you can see below, the recipe calls for 1.5-2 tablespoons of honey-this is depending on how sweet you prefer your oatmeal.  1.5 is sweet enough for us.  and one last thing; if you are sold on those “instant packets” of oatmeal at the store because of ease it is simple to do with this recipe:  just place all of the dry ingredients in a sealed plastic bag or air tight container and store it in your pantry for up to 6 months.  you can easily portion a lot of these out ahead of time so all you have to do is add water and milk 🙂

Ingredients

1 Cup Old Fashioned Oats

1 Cup Milk

1 Cup Water

1.5-2 Tablespoons Honey

1 Teaspoon Cinnamon

1/2 Teaspoon Ground Allspice

Pinch of Salt

Directions
