Leftover Oatmeal is the BEST!

I hate throwing things away. It's kinda sick. I'm sure it has a little to do with living with my grandmother, GG, when I was teaching back in the day.

Well, it is doubly horrible, in my mind, to discard edible food... for any reason. Especially food that is good for you!

Can you imagine how excited I was to find out you can make OATMEAL CAKES using leftover oatmeal!? Aw, yeah, baby! And it's easy, good for you (depending on how much sweetner you use) and good to eat!

Here's what I do:

OATMEAL CAKES by Mama-cita

What you need:
cold, cooked oatmeal (Tastes great with banana or apples or cinnamon in the oatmeal too!)
maple syrup or powdered sugar for serving

What you do:
1. Put some butter in a skillet and get it hot and all melted. (I LOVE butter!)

2. Take glops of oatmeal, form them into a patties, and cook them in the butter. Let them get good and browned Before you flip. Repeat on the other side. Add more butter if nec'y.

3. Add your topping preference and enjoy!

  1. My dad does this, too! Refried oatmeal. I've never actually triad it, but think I'll have to now.

    Once-cooked oatmeal, or, "mush," was never a favorite growing up, but I've come to have a healthy respect for it now...occasionally.
