60-seconds at night = happy, hearty, and healthy breakfast in the morning. I like mine with berries, chia seeds, and chopped nuts. You can add whatever you like as long as you follow the basic ratio of 1 part oatmeal to 2 parts milk.
*A word on oats. I used Trader Joe's Steel Cut Oats and they work really well. I have been told by a couple of people that Irish oats do not work in this recipe, but I have not tried it myself.
**A word on milk. I've made this now with light soy milk and skim milk. The skim milk seems to be 100% absorbed by the oats, resulting in a thicker, drier oatmeal. The soy milk leaves the oats slightly more liquidy. If your family purchases cow's milk, but you like your oats with more liquid, just add an extra splash of milk before you eat this in the morning!
