Oatmeal #1

Oatmeal #1
(Serves 1 toddler with a hearty morning appetite)

Neko has oatmeal most weekday mornings. We buy the organic oatmeal sampler pack from Costco which has 45 assorted packs of oatmeal. 2 of the 'flavors' are original (plain ol' oatmeal) and flax and oats (plain ol' oatmeal with some flax meal). Obviously these are a harder sell then the apple cinnamon for example. We recently got to the bottom of the box and were left with only original and flax and oats so I've been experimenting with making them palatable for Neko. When I come up with new creations I will let you know.

Today's creation was:
2 packs of flax and oats oatmeal (yes she really eats 2)
1/2 c. organic unsweetened applesauce
2 Tbsp. golden raisins
2 Tsp. brown sugar
dash of cinnamon

I don't really measure any of this out but I tried to estimate.
1. Put oats in bowl and stir in applesauce.
2. Stir in enough hot water to make oatmeal the right consistency
3. Stir in a dash of cinnamon and half of the brown sugar
4. Sprinkle the raisins, the other half of the brown sugar and another dash of cinnamon on top. Serve!
