This is a healthier, tastier alternative to the instant oatmeal packets sold at the supermarket. Make several batches ahead of time to store in single-serving containers for quick weekday breakfasts.
Feel free to tinker with this one. Substitute other dried fruits, add toasted nuts, or try cinnamon in place of ginger.”
Put the oats, dried blueberries, brown sugar, salt and ginger in a deep, microwave-safe cereal bowl. Add water and stir.
Microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes, until the oats absorb the liquid and appear soft. Remove from the microwave using an oven mitt. Stir and cool for 1 minute.
Enjoy as is or with a splash of cold milk.
