Hot oats – (base recipe)

10 minutes (2 minutes)
Serves 2 (Makes 2 cups)
  • ¾ cup wholegrain rolled oats  
  • 2 cups reduced fat milk  

1. Combine oats and milk in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to the boil.  

2. Gently boil for 4-6 minutes, stirring often, until thick and creamy. 

Tips 

  • For creamier oats, soak oats and milk overnight in a large bowl or container in the fridge before cooking. 
  • To cook in microwave instead of on stovetop, combine oats and milk in a large microwave safe dish. Cook on High (100%) for about 6 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes, until thick and creamy.
