French Brown Sugar-Cinnamon Oatmeal ****

I love this recipe from The French Don’t Diet Plan by Dr. Will Clower. Enjoy!

1 C. water
1/2 C. rolled oats
pinch of salt
1 T. unsalted butter
1 T. brown sugar
1/2 t. cinnamon

Boil water and then add the salt and oats. Lower the heat to medium and cook until the water is absorbed. ( use whole oats or quick oats., whole oats will just take a little longer).
Add butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Add any fruit desired, sliced thin. I generally use very thinly sliced apples.

This is so quick and delicious.

I have learned by studying the French that they eat great delicious food that is not processed. They will eat whatever foods they want as long as it is real. Real foods are those that are natural and are a normal part of our food chain. A good example of that is brown sugar. They will eat brown sugar, but not a sugar substitute in a packet that looks like white dust.

The kitchen was definitely the most challenging to work with since I love to cook and had a lot of kitchen gadgets and dishes. I was motivated by Rachel Khoo from The Little Paris Kitchen. Kitchens in Paris are basically closet size and that doesn’t hinder them from cooking delicious meals for am entire family and even entertain guests.
