Take one part oats, two parts liquid and add together (for example, cup of water and 1/2 cup of oats). Bring to a simmer and stir until oats soften and liquid thickens. At this point you can add flavorings like cinnemon, syrup, or fruit.
There are many ways to prepare oats. You can add fresh fruit on top, or raisins during cooking. Its all up to you.by
