I look forward to my oatmeal every morning and I found an easy way to make it. No boiling over in the microwave, just pour boiling water (I make mine in my hot pot) over the raw oatmeal, cover with a plate and it will be ready in minutes. Just barely cover the oatmeal or it will be too soggy. I like mine chewy so it is ready in 4-5 minutes. The lower the bowl, the faster it is ready. I love adding, cinnamon, flax seed, and some fruit.
I got this idea from The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone, you can check it out at http://www.thekindlife.com/.
