Cooking Oatmeal Basics

oats in water

1 part oats to 2 parts water

Single serving: 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water (or other liquid)

oatmeal in microwave

2 minutes in the microwave or 8-10 on the stove

Stove(preferred): ~8-10 minutes, or until desired consistency. Bring water to boil, add oats, reduce heat (simmer) and cover. Stir occasionally to prevent oats from sticking to the bottom of the pan.

Microwave: ~2 minutes, may be longer or shorter depending on the power rating of your microwave. Watch out for expanding oatmeal! Using a wide-brim bowl may prevent microwave messes.
