14Mar2018Irish Oatmeal Jump to Recipe Print Recipe A warm bowl of Irish Oatmeal is perfect on a chilly morning! Steel cut oats with brown sugar, cinnamon, and raisins – filling and delicious! Most weekday mornings in this house are so busy and rushed we enjoy toast, fruit, or cold cereal before everyone runs out the door. The boys, of course, choose their favorite cereal. Paul makes his traditional coffee in his travel mug on his way to work. I usually have toast with apple butter and a piece of fruit with my coffee.I miss oatmeal so much, you guys!I really don’t know why I have it stuck in my head that oatmeal takes so much longer than any of the things I listed above. Well… I suppose it does take a *smidge* longer than just pouring out cereal and milk into a bowl. Really though, you just stir it together in the pot and let it do its thing. Not hard, Kel. 😆 I made this Irish Oatmeal one morning and you’d have thought I pulled out every pot and pan and was slaving the entire morning away for these people – HA! I’ll tell you what helps me actually make a hot breakfast in the morning: I pull out the steel cut oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon and place it in the pot and leave it on the stove top. That way I literally have it staring me in the face while I make my coffee! You should try it!!Recipe PrintIrish OatmealA warm bowl of Irish Oatmeal is perfect on a chilly morning!
