  • 2 1/4 c old fashioned rolled oats
  • 4 c water
  • 1/2 c raw sugar
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 T butter


  1. For 6 servings of oatmeal, which feeds me and my 7 kids a toddler portion each, I soak 2 1/4 cups of old fashioned rolled oats in 4 cups of water overnight. 

  2. In the morning, I add raw sugar, sea salt, and butter. 

  3. I turn the burner on high and stir while I bring the mixture to a boil. Once it is boiling rapidly, I turn off the heat, put the lid on the pan, and let it set until breakfast time (about 20 mintues).
  4. You can flavor the oatmeal with 1 cup fruit such as apples, blueberries, peaches or raisins. Put the fruit in when you begin cooking. 

    You can also change the flavor by using the same amount of real maple syrup or honey in place of raw sugar.

    You can add sesame, sunflower or pumpkin seeds or even pecans to your oatmeal.

    You can add a pinch of cinnamon with apples or peaches.

    You can add 1/2 tsp of vanilla or a splash of heavy cream.

    You can add 2 T peanut butter with or without 2 T cocoa powder.
