How to Make Coffee Pot Oatmeal

by Blake Urban

This is one of those things that is too good to be true. Oatmeal is not only hardy, but it is healthy as well. So have a bowl to go.

Things You'll Need:

  • Pot With Timer (Cleaned)
  • One Minute Oats
  • Oatmeal Toppings

It's a cold winter. It's Monday morning and time to shovel the drive, as you have to get to work. You can't shovel on an empty stomach, but you also can't spend the time making breakfast. A solution lands in your lap like a hot cup of java.

If you are using a coffee pot that you regularly brew coffee in, you may consider a nice scrubbing. I was lucky to find a new one thrift shopping that has a timer, especially useful. If yours does not have a timer, use an outlet timer, which is an inexpensive solution.

As soon as you read "Coffee Pot Oatmeal," you probably understood what it meant. Make oatmeal with your coffee pot. Measure the amount of oatmeal as per the servings and put in carafe. A coffee pot will hold between one and three servings, but two is perfect. Add the corresponding amount of water plus an additional 1/8 cup and set the timer.

Now before you head off to work on a cold winter day, hot oatmeal will be waiting as soon as you awake. Top with whatever toppings you prefer. This has been a time saver for me for years and a pleasure to share.

Pam, this is brilliant! I love being able to do as much organizing, preparing the night before when I have an early and busy morning the next day.

I just, admittedly skeptically, tried this for my lunch. I put oats, snipped dried peaches, walnuts, nondairy creamer and a little brown sugar in the carafe. I wasn't sure the peaches would fully hydrate but they did! Thank you SO much for sharing this!

Would this work for instant grits?
