If you like the flavor of gingerbread (my favorite), you will love this oatmeal. Combining the traditional gingerbread flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and molasses, you create a healthy version of gingerbread in a bowl. For a faster breakfast, make it the night before and reheat in the microwave with a splash of milk. A warm and cozy way to start a cold winter morning.
1 cup old fashioned oats
2 cups fat-free milk (or milk of your choice)
Dash of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger
2 teaspoons molasses
Brown sugar or maple syrup if desired
Cook oatmeal according to directions, using milk instead of water. Divide into 2 bowls. Top each bowl with a sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Drizzle each serving with 1 teaspoon molasses and top with chopped walnuts. If you want a sweeter oatmeal, stir in a teaspoon of brown sugar or maple syrup.
