Quaker Old Fashioned Oatmeal Hack
Okay this isn’t going to bring peace to the world, but it just might make your oatmeal loving life just a smidgen better. Here’s the crime. You want a nice hot steamy bowl of oatmeal and you’re all out of the Quaker One-Minute variety. And chances are you’re a lot like me, in that I reserve the Quaker Old Fashioned Oats (rolled whole oats) for baking purposes. Well now don’t you fret because I got a quick and easy hack to turn your frown upside down.
All you need is your food processor and a cup of Quaker Old Fashioned Oats. Use the standard blade attachment, pour in the whole oats and give ’em a pulse or two (actually several) and viola! You got yourself some quick cooking oats for cooking up a pot of one of the worlds’ best comfort foods. You’re welcome.
So there you have it, a quick an easy way to presto chango whole rolled oats into quick fast-cooking oatmeal. Ta dah! Make sure you check out the toppings I threw on top of my delicious hacked oatmeal. A bit of standard-issue brown sugar, a drizzle of sweet golden honey and a soupçon of slightly crushed and toasted pecans, and yeah good eats!
- 1 cup Quaker Old Fashioned Oats (or as much as you like)
