Easy Oatmeal

My quest for an easy and delicious breakfast continues.  I really like oatmeal but require many toppings and really don't like rummaging about my kitchen cupboards for said toppings. Yesterday, I was still buzzing mid afternoon from my mid morning coffee and itching for something to do in the kitchen.  It was too early to make dinner so I decided to work on breakfast.  

I like this oatmeal because I can take it to work or the studio in the morning, fill it with hot, boiling water, put the lid on and within a few minutes have breakfast.  And oatmeal fills me up for hours, which makes for a less hangry me later on in the day. 

Easy Oatmeal

1/3 cup quick oats

1/4 teaspoon chia seeds (or flax, hemp hearts...)

1 teaspoon light brown sugar

1 tablespoon chopped pecans 

2 teaspoons dried cranberries

dash cinnamon

pinch salt

2/3 cups boiling water

Place oats, seeds, sugar, nuts, cranberries, cinnamon and salt in jar.  Add boiling water, let sit for 2 minutes.  Or add room temperature water and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes.
