1. Place a medium saucepan over medium heat and bring the water to a gentle simmer then add the oats.

2. Stir well to combine and boil to a gentle simmer

3. Reduce the heat to low and let the oatmeal cook for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.

Tips and Variations

– For a creamier texture, you can replace the water with more milk.

– Feel free to customize the toppings based on your preference. Chopped walnuts, almonds, or pecans add a delightful crunch, while fresh berries or sliced apples can provide a refreshing twist.

– If you prefer a more intense cinnamon flavour, you can increase the amount of cinnamon in the recipe.

– To save time in the morning, you can prepare a larger batch of oatmeal and store it in the refrigerator. When ready to serve, simply reheat the desired portion in a saucepan or microwave, adding a splash of milk or water to loosen the consistency if needed.

– Experiment with different types of raisins, such as golden raisins or sultanas, to vary the flavour profile of your oatmeal.
