Start your mornings with a warm bowl of Maple and Brown Sugar Oatmeal topped with a maple brown sugar glaze.
I have always had a love for oatmeal. Every now and then I also love those instant packets that you can find in a variety of flavors. Maple and Brown Sugar is one of my favorites.
Not only do I have rolled oats on hand to make some of my favorite oatmeal recipes like my Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal, but it’s great for whipping up some homemade granola or to make my favorite Iced Oatmeal Cookies.
Most of my oatmeal recipes use old-fashioned rolled oats, but I wanted to create a quick and easy oatmeal recipe that using quick oats. With a little milk, a splash of maple syrup, some light brown sugar and of course quick oats you can easily prepare this delicious Maple and Brown Sugar Oatmeal. And if you have some chopped walnut or pecans on hand, toss them in too for a little crunch.
Once you try these easy recipe, you may never be tempted to buy those instant packets again!
