Double Your Grains!

Do you know this little secret? It's pretty cool...
Who doesn't dream about the endless bowl of oatmeal. Doesn't it sound incredible? And pretty unrealistic. But never say never! With my simple trick, you can DOUBLE your oat bowl (or and grain, for that matter!). Eureka, we've done it!

The endless oatmeal bowl. Droooool. I made mine with Blueberries, coconut, and cinnamon. Yummers.

Double Your Grains!

  1. Read the package of your grain of choice (say, oats, for example). For one serving, the directions call for 1/2 cup of oats and 1 cup water. We're not doing that. We will still use 1/2 cup of oats, but we will instead use 2 CUPS of water. It's THAT SIMPLE! Double the food, with the same nutritional info. Dream come true. 
  2. In a small soup pot, bring 1 cup of water to a rolling boil. When boiling, reduce heat to medium and stir in oats. Cook for about 4-5 minutes, until oats are beginning to expand and absorb the water. 
  3. Add your second cup of water and increase heat. Simmer on HIGH until thick, gooey, and utterly drool-worthy. You can ad any mix-ins at this time if you desire. 
  4. Pour into a bowl and enjoy!
