desired toppings: real maple syruphoney, coconut, apples, cinnamon, peanut butter, etc.
In a saucepan, combine oats, water, and a pinch of salt.
Bring to a boil, turn down heat to simmer and let gently cook about 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally until oatmeal has thickened and reached the desired texture. Cook time may vary depending on the thickness of your oats.
Add sweetener, coconut oil or butter, and other desired toppings.
For creamier oatmeal, you could substitute half of the water for milk.
