My kids love going to their grandmom’s because she makes the best oatmeal. She uses Bob’s Red Mill rolled oats, steel cut oats and fresh fruit or raisins to make her magical breakfast that the kids devour.
Every time I’ve tried to make it in the past, the kids hate it. But we got a new Instant Pot when Amazon had a deal and now I can make oatmeal like a pro!
And it is ready to serve in 10 minutes! All you need is 1 cup of Bob’s Red Mill Oats, 2 cups of water, a sprinkle of Coconut Sugar, an organic apple, and sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg. Cook for 3 minutes on the Instant Pot and then wait for it to steam. You can also add Stonyfield Vanilla Grassfed yogurt or breastmilk to thin out and add flavor!
The littlest has not liked any baby oatmeal’s that we have tried. I’ve given her the mixes, the pre-made kind, the kind you add breastmilk and serve, and the pouches… she has just never cared for it. But she sure does love her Bob’s Red Mill oatmeal!
There are many health benefits of eating oatmeal. Studies have shown that oats lower LDL “bad” cholesterol and may help reduce the risk of heart disease. They help with weight control and also may help lower blood pressure. Oats are also high in beta-glucans, a kind of starch that stimulates the immune system- which is why it is great for children and babies to eat!
