Oatmeal Trials, 4


That's 1/3 cup Coach's Oats topped to 1 cup with water, microwaved on 70% power for 2.5 minutes with dry cranberries to be stirred in.


There was another oatmeal overflow mishap in the microwave. Again, I just scooped it all into a bowl before adding dry cranberries and enough cinnamon for three cakes. It wasn't quite like a Cinnamon Challenge*, but still excessive.


I'm convinced 70% power for 2 minutes and 30 seconds is the way to go for me. After stirring in the flavoring ingredients and letting the oatmeal stand a few minutes the texture is perfect.

*Why would anyone consider doing this?! What a waste of tree bark!
