1 cup Whole Milk
½ cup Old Fashioned Oats, heaping
⅛ tsp. Mineral Salt
2-3 tbsp. Maple Syrup
¾ tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1 tbsp. Salted Butter
¼ tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 ½ – 2 tbsp. Cream Cheese
½ tsp. Honey
Add the milk, oats, mineral salt, maple syrup, and ground cinnamon to a small saucepan. Stir well and heat over medium-high heat.
Once the mixture has reached a high simmer but has not begun boiling, stir well and reduce the heat to medium.
Set the timer for 5 minutes and cook, stirring often, until the time is up.
Once the 5 minutes have passed, remove the oatmeal from the heat and stir in the butter until melted.
Add the vanilla extract and stir well to combine.
Add the cream cheese and honey to a small dish, and combine with the back of a spoon. This will help smooth the cream cheese and make it spreadable.
If you’d like to present a swirl, you may pipe on a swirl using a plastic storage bag with the corner snipped off. You may also spread the cream cheese topping on gently if desired. Piping makes for a nice presentation but isn’t required for a tasty bowl of oatmeal.
