I have toasted quinoa before for hot cereal but I have never toasted oatmeal for hot cereal. It added a nice nutty flavor to the oatmeal. It was fun to add almond butter it added to the nutty flavor and made the oatmeal a creamier texture. It is a yummy way to start your day. It also would make a great snack.
1/3 C Old fashioned oatmeal
1 C water
1 T almond butter
2 tsp honey* optional
1/4 C raspberries

1. Put medium saucepan on stove medium heat. Pour the oatmeal into the pan and stir a couple minutes. You will start to smell a nutty smell.
