Oatmeal in the Rice Cooker

I was reading a blog post by Casual Kitchen about how breakfast cereal is so overpriced and how no one should buy it, and I commented that my solution to this is to buy oatmeal, which I can make so easily in the rice cooker. Surprisingly, everyone wanted to know how to make it. It’s so easy, folks!

Oatmeal in the Rice Cooker

1 cup regular Quaker Oats oatmeal (neither instant nor slow-cook)

2 cups water

Instructions: Combine in rice cooker. Hit “cook.” Wait about twenty minutes. If you want to spice it up, add raisins to cooking process (or afterwards, if you don’t like ’em plumpy), and serve with honey or maple syrup. I like to put soy milk on mine instead of milk. Yum!

    Thanks for posting this… you were right, everybody DID want to know. Glad to hear it’s unbelievably easy.

    And thank you for your input! This is exactly the kind of collaboration that makes food blogging so satisfying.

  2. Dude! That might almost make a rice cooker worth it! I make oatmeal every week on Sunday and package it up for the week with some fruit tossed in.
