Effortless Raisin Pecan Oatmeal

After yesterday’s almost extravagant breakfast I didn’t have the effort to do much besides put the food on the spoon and put the spoon in my mouth.  So, I decided to make oatmeal, one of the easiest breakfast foods to make.

3/4 Cup instant oatmeal

1/2 C boiling or hot water

1/4 Cup Raisins

1/2 a handful of pecans (walnuts are also a softer nice nut to put in oatmeal)

a splash of soymilk

about 1/2 tsp cinnamon

a sprinkle of brown sugar

Place the oatmeal in a medium sized bowl

add the hot water and then stir

Add all of the ingredients and mix as much as desired.  If you like your oatmeal a little more watery then go ahead and add either more soy milk or more boiling water, I prefer it a little more firm with the raisins for consistency.  Also, other dried fruit tastes great in oatmeal, like dried cranberries or cherries!

Adding the pecans (or other nut of your choice) also adds protein to your morning.

It also only takes about 5 minutes to make 🙂
