Muffin Tin Monday, Oatmeal

Oatmeal? Really? Oh, yes, the girls loved it. I helped Audrey cook the oatmeal and then we found fun things to place in the tins so they could spice up the boring breakfast. I portioned out a small amount of oatmeal in a larger bowl so they could spoon, pour or tip the additions into the dish. Audrey had fun mixing and eating, Maurene ate the side items and decided not to try the oatmeal this time. I am not giving up on her.

The girls had raisins, chopped walnuts, plain yogurt, dried blueberries, and cherry jam to flavor their oatmeal. I mixed a little brown sugar into the oatmeal before dishing it out because I did not want the girls to eat the sugar plain. 

Measuring the dry oats.

Adding mixers while the oatmeal cooks.
A fun way to start the day.

This was another fun meal for Muffin Tin Monday. If you are not already you should check out all of the fabulous ideas posted. It can be great inspiration for meals and fun for little helpers to participate in meal preparation.

  1. Oohhh.. fun idea- I know that my kids will enjoy doing this too! When my kids make their own pizzas they try so many more toppings than they would otherwise... I bet the same would happen with oatmeal.

  2. I've never tried any of those toppings besides raisins in my oatmeal. We usually have brown sugar, cinnamon and raisins. Sometimes apples. Your selections sound yummy. What a neat idea.
