What do you do if you can’t bake your favorite food? Here’s how to make the perfect one in an instant recipe guide
If you can bake your favorites food, then you can use the microwave to make these quick, easy, and super tasty oats.
The basic idea is to bake the oats for an hour or so, then mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients to make a cake.
The ingredients are optional, but you can make it into an oatmeal muffin, a mini muffin (you could even make a cupcake) or even a cup of oatmeal.
The only trick is to let the dry oats sit for about five minutes before you mix the wet with the dry.
If you’ve never baked an oat before, it may be tricky to get it right, but with some trial and error, it will be easier than you think.
Here are some tips for the best oat recipe: For the muffin: Mix the dry oat ingredients with 3/4 cup of water.
Microwave for 15-20 seconds, then stir with a fork.
If the mixture looks thick, add another cup of dry oatmeal to the mix and stir for another 10-15 seconds.
For a mini oatmeal: Mix 3/8 cup of oats with 1/2 cup of milk.
Micowave for five to seven seconds, or until the mixture comes together.
To make the cupcake: Microware for three minutes, or for two minutes in the microwave.
Stir with a wooden spoon until the batter is well mixed.
If you don’t have an electric mixer, you can get a plastic one from your local hardware store or make one by hand.
After you’ve made your oatmeal, store in an airtight container.
If you don�t have an instant oat maker, here’s how: Microwsome.com.
Use the same steps as for a muffin.
Mix the dry, watery ingredients for about 20 seconds.
Microwsame the oat mixture with 3 1/4 cups of water and stir.
Add the wet to the dry and stir until combined.
When the batter has mixed, pour the batter into a muffing tin and place it in the fridge for 10 minutes to allow it to cool.
This oatmeal recipe makes about 2 1/3 cups.
You can freeze it, or you can store it in an ice cube tray or a bowl.
If it freezes, then add the remaining liquid to the bowl, stir, and repeat until it is fully chilled.
If it freezes well, then make it ahead of time.
You could freeze it for the next time you need a delicious oatmeal breakfast or dessert.
