Sugar and Spiced Oatmeal
It’s simple to make. Heat up one puck of [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][Trader Joe’s][TJ] Frozen Steelcut Oatmeal in the microwave (two minutes, then stir, then one more minute). Remove from microwave and sprinkle [Savory Spice Shop’s][SP] Spiced Vanilla Bean Sugar to taste. Crumble some walnuts and cashew nuts over the oatmeal and sprinkle some more Spice Vanilla Bean Sugar. Enjoy.
Oatmeal isn’t something I eat every day. I drink fruit blends during the week — it’s an easy quick but nutritious breakfast — so on the weekend I’ll have either grits or oatmeal for breakfast. I prefer steel cuts that have been cooked in a slow cooker over night but in a pinch the Trader Joe’s frozen version is fine.
The [Trader Joe’s][TJ] Frozen Steelcut Oatmeal is water, steel-cut oats, brown sugar, maple syrup, rolled oats, and salt. And the Spiced Vanilla Bean Sugar? Madagascar vanilla beans, pure vanilla extract, cinnamon, allspice, mace and cardamom.
