Hearty, Healthier Oatmeal

Lots of people like their oatmeal a little bit sweet, but a big dollop of sugar isn't what we need for breakfast. Never fear - Kidsweet™ oatmeal is just as good, and packed with nutrition. The kids (and their parents...) will eat it up. A serving of Kidsweet™ oatmeal is only about three grams of sugar (from the milk, and six if you add molasses), far better than any of the commercial sweetened oatmeal blends. Making it in an Instant Pot takes most of the work out of the cooking process.

Ingredients
  

  • 4 c old fashioned oats
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 t Cinnamon
  • 4 cups boiling-hot water 6 for conventional pot
  • 1/4 c Kidsweet™ available at https://kidsweet.com/shop/
  • 1/4 t sea salt
  • 1/4 c molasses (optional not sugar-free)
  • 4 cups whole milk 6for conventional pot
  • 1/4 c hemp oil

Instructions
 

  • Start your water getting hot. Six minutes in a full-power microwave will do it.
  • Melt butter in your pot on high. If you're using an Instant Pot, put it on sautee/high.
  • When the butter is melted add the oats. Stir in the butter right away and then stir occasionally so the oats toast but do not burn.
  • A minute before the oats will be toasted thoroughly, add the cinnamon and stir for the last minute.
  • Now add the boiling hot water. There may be splashing, roiling, and steam, so use your safety gear.
  • Now add the salt, Kidsweet™, and molasses (if using). Stir to combine.
  • If you are using a conventional pot, boil on medium-high until most of the water is absorbed/evaporated, stirring occasionally. For an Instant Pot, just continue.
  • Add the milk and hemp oil and stir to integrate. You can skip the hemp oil or use another type of oil, but it's a great way to get Omega-3's in to the kids and it adds a subtle nutty flavor.
  • For a conventional pot, continue boiling on medium until the milk is mostly but not entirely absorbed, stirring occasionally. For an Instant Pot, on manual mode, set it for 12 minutes and cook with natural release (but turn off the pot).
  • Stir again when cooking is done. Serve as-is or with a sprinkling of Cinnamon Kidsweet™ on top.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 eggs pasteurized
  • 2 T coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons Kidsweet™
  • 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 4 oz ice cubes

Instructions
 

  • - Add eggs, coconut oil, Kidsweet™, vanilla, and salt to blender. Mix thoroughly.
  • - Add milk and ice.
  • - Crush ice and blend until very smooth.

Notes

Variants:

  • coffee: add 1/2 t instant coffee granules with the eggs
  • chocolate: add 2 t cocoa powder with the eggs
  • non-dairy: use nut milk instead of whole milk. Optionally increase the coconut oil to 3T.
  • keto: increase coconut oil to 1/4 cup. Use 3/4 c nut milk and 1/4 c heavy cream.
  • Note: The coconut oil needs to emulsify with the eggs before adding the ice or it will be chunky! If your coconut oil is solid at room temperature, heat it a little bit so it will be liquid when blending.
Remember, pasteurized eggs are a lawyer's favorite kind of eggs.
