  1. In a medium saucepan, heat water to boiling. Reduce heat to low; stir in oats and salt. Cook until oats have thickened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Place 1 teaspoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar in the bottom of each four serving bowls. Spoon oatmeal into each bowl and stir until butter and sugar are melted. Pour 1/4 cup of creamer and 1 tablespoon of milk over each bowl. Top each serving with another tablespoon of brown sugar. Serve hot.

Very good, but a little bland - I added chopped apples, raisins, and a little cinnamon.


Something my daughter will eat!! I used milk instead of creamer as well.


I made this for just two and found that using the measurements provided for two servings made it too soupy. The second time I made it, I used just 1 and 3/4 cups water and kept the rest of the measurements the same. I used regular half and half instead of non-dairy creamer, and I skipped the milk and second tablespoon of brown sugar. One tablespoon was just enough. My son really liked it the first time, but with it being so thin, he thought it lost its flavor by the time he finished the bowl. When I cut back on the water and it was thicker, he loved it.
