Spicing up oatmeal in a healthy way. Cinnamoni, cardamom, and ginger all have anti-viral properties, so if you are fighting off a cold in the winter (or any time of the year), this is a great recipe to try. For a little variety, you can make this exact recipe with quinoa, bulgar wheat, or amaranth.

Vanilla - Cinnamon Oatmeal ingredients

  • 3 c water
  • 1 1⁄2 c rolled oats
  • Salt
  • 1⁄2 t Cinnamon
  • 1⁄2 t Cardamom
  • 1⁄2 t Ginger powder
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1 t flaxseed oil

Cooking Vanilla - Cinnamon Oatmeal

Add the cinnamon, cardamom, vanilla extract, and ginger powder to the water to boil. Some people add their oatmeal to the water after it begins to boil, but I find that adding the oatmeal at the same time, before it begins to boil, actually gives the oatmeal a very smooth, rich flavor. Once you boil the oatmeal for about fifteen minutes and it boils down into a porridge, add a fruit of your choice. Great fruits to add are strawberries, blueberries, apples, or bananas while it’s still warm so that it cooks into the oatmeal. You may also add golden raisins and/or almonds. This adds a little crunchy texture to it. Other things that you can add to your oatmeal are granola and flax seeds or wheat germ. Again, that adds somewhat of a nutty taste to it and adds a little bit of texture.
