Make Oatmeal In A Coffee Maker

Make Oatmeal In A Coffee Maker

Apparently your coffee maker is capable of making more than just coffee. One interesting thing it can make is oatmeal in just under five minutes.

Technology and DIY blog Geekosphere explains that making oatmeal in your coffee maker is a pretty quick and simple process:

Put two packets of instant oatmeal into the carafe. Add an individual packet of honey, an individual packet of fruit jam, and a pinch of salt. Put an herbal tea bag (e.g. orange flavored) into the filter basket. Pour 8-10 ounces of water into the coffee maker, turn on the machine, and the oatmeal will be ready in about 5 minutes.

  • Another simpler way is to add to your cereal bowl, a (small) handful of sultanas, half a cup of rolled oats, half a cup of water. Cover with plastic food wrap and leave it sit over night. By putting the sultanas in first they absorb the water that settles to the bottom of the bowl. Next morning you have nice soaked oats, delicious plump sultanas already to eat. Of course you can add honey, blueberries or anything you fancy, to this in the morning if you have a sweet tooth :-).
