Eat, Drink & Be Happy

Fruitty Oatmeal

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Days I go without breakfast and two cups of coffee are brutal. So I thought it was only appropriate to start my blog with a recipe for breakfast. Quick, easy and microwave friendly, Fruity Oatmeal is a healthy, filling, colorful and tasty way to start any day. Plus, a serving from a 42 oz container that costs $2.24 is only 7 cents—meaning I will happily enjoy my cheap breakfast!

Oatmeal is a quick and easy breakfast anyone can prepare. Mix it up by trying different toppings like syrup, bananas, nuts and raisins. Photo: Emily Thomsen

Prep Time: 1 minute

 Cook Time: 2 minutes


½ cup whole grain quick oats

½ cup frozen fruit (I use a bagged mixture that includes strawberries, raspberries, blue berries and black berries.)

¾ cup water (If you prefer your oatmeal to have a runny consistency, use 1 cup.) 


Place oatmeal, frozen fruit and water in a medium microwave safe bowl. Cook for 2 minutes.

Stir and enjoy!
