This is the second of the two oatmeal recipes here (the first being the banana nut oatmeal that I made a couple of weeks ago and keep eating like an obsessed woman).
I've adapted it for a few things -- first of which being the microwave, per Alissa's suggestion.
1/2 cup Quaker Old Fashioned Oatmeal
1/2 c. milk
1/2-1/3 cup water
3 teaspoons maple syrup, separated
1 1/2 tablespoons raisins, separated
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
A few shakes cinnamon
A few dashes Kosher salt
In a bowl, combine oatmeal, milk, water, 2 teaspoons maple syrup, 1 tablespoon raisins, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Heat in microwave for 5 minutes at 50 percent.
Top with remaining raisins. Drizzle with remaining teaspoon syrup.
