The night before, I place in a pot:
- 1 cup of old fashioned oats,
- a few spoonfuls of nuts or seeds,
- a dash of cinnamon (optional), and
- water to cover everything to about a quarter inch past the dry ingredients.
In the morning, I heat the mix of soaked oats and seeds on the stove. Once heated, I place the oatmeal, a splash of milk (cow, soy, rice, or other kind of your choice) in a bowl, and top it all with the thawed berries and a sprinkle of brown sugar or maple syrup.
I wash it all down with a cup of hot black Assam tea, and I am sorrensified until noon.
