5 min Brown Sugar Oatmeal – Flavorful, healthy quick and easy weekday breakfast.
I make this when I am in a hurry but hungry for something warm in the morning. Can’t go wrong with this oatmeal bowl with brown sugar and cinnamon!
Oatmeal porridge can be so comforting in the morning before running out the door to go to work or to school. When I went to college back in Austria, we didn’t have oatmeal porridge because that’s not a commonly made breakfast dish there.
If I look back I wished I had had something like a comforting brown sugar oatmeal porridge before catching the cold bus and train to go to college.
It surely would have made my day sweeter!
What’s Brown Sugar Oatmeal?
We all know regular cooked oatmeal porridge right? Well, Quaker oats have a delicious brown sugar oatmeal version in their product range. Sure, we could just go with that but it costs way more than the plain instant oatmeals!
So, I came up with my own homemade version, which by the way tastes better because after all, you get to adjust it the way you like it. I find the ready made brown sugar oatmeals from quaker way too sweet.
In that sense, the homemade brown sugar oatmeal is healthier!
It’s not as if it was complicated to prepare your own flavored brown sugar oatmeal dish. There is no extra work involved. That’s why I don’t get why I should buy the ready-made version.
In 5 min you can prepare a wholesome batch of hot sweet brown sugar cinnamon oatmeal with this recipe. That’s the same time it takes you to cook up the ready-made quaker version which costs even more.
