Brown Sugar Oatmeal

Oatmeal in general, it is simple to make. So what makes this Brown Sugar Cinnamon Oatmeal different? Honestly, I think it because I make a brown sugar solution to boil for the oatmeal.


Most people boil water, add oatmeal, then put in the bowl. Then they mix in the cinnamon and sugar. It is good. There is nothing wrong with doing oatmeal that way.


How To Make Brown Sugar Cinnamon Oatmeal

I actually add the brown sugar and cinnamon to the water instead. It makes a difference I think. In fact, people tried my oatmeal even say they like how I flavor it.


The thought of doing a cinnamon sugar solution to cook in is about infusing. I figure you are infusing this oatmeal recipe with flavor. The oats with cinnamon is now flavored inside the oats.


Anyone can make brown sugar oatmeal. It is a simple oatmeal breakfast recipe. Plus oatmeal with cinnamon has health benefits.


So if you are like me and need a change in your life, start off small with a simple breakfast recipe. This brown sugar cinnamon oatmeal is the perfect change you need. Let’s start a new lifestyles together!

    I never would have thought to put the brown sugar in with the water I cook the oatmeal with! I usually just add the sugar, butter, and cinnamon after cooking. I will try this next time I make oatmeal, though my preference is for Irish oats versus rolled. I love the texture of slightly undercooked steel cut oats.

      I used to too, then one day I did this way found out I like it much better! I like Irish oats too, I usually make those in my slow cooker… I should do Irish oat recipe… I do need more breakfast on here 🙂

    My kids love maple and brown sugar oatmeal, but I usually just let them use the packets. Love the idea of homemade oatmeal instead!

    I absolutely love starting the day with oatmeal.. it keeps my energy going for a long time. I might replace the raisins with dried cranberries but that’s just personal preference.

    I love this! I made it for breakfast this morning (minus the raisins since I don’t like them) and it was so good. It tastes better than the storebought stuff and much healthier as well.

    My husband and best friend of 22 years are both diabetics and my friend had a heart attack and stroke last year. I’ve always been underweight so I’m trying to learn healthy cooking choices to maintain my weight while helping two men I love diet and also satisfy two growing teenage sons. This was an excellent recipe that did all of that and quick. I did substitute some 2% milk for water and I made 5 times as much as this recipe. It turned out awesome however I should have used a bigger pot. Now i need to figure out how to get the milt and water i boiled over off my glass top stove. Pay attention if you choose to use milk so you dont make my mistake and stir to be sure not to scorch your milk in your pan. Aside from my human error this recipe was the best by far.
