Bowl of Oatmeal Cookie


A spruced up version of a bowl of oatmeal that tastes more like an oatmeal cookie! I make mine in the microwave for a quick and easy breakfast.

2 servings


  • 1 egg

  • 1 cup milk

  • 3 tablespoons milk

  • cup quick-cooking oats

  • 2 tablespoons raisins, or to taste (Optional)

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon butter, or to taste

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • salt to taste


  1. Beat egg in a microwave-safe bowl; add 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons milk, oats, raisins, brown sugar, vanilla extract, butter, cinnamon, and salt and mix well.

  2. Microwave on high for 1 minute; stir and microwave for 1 minute more. Stir oatmeal and microwave until cooked, about 1 minute more.

Cook's Note:

I was tired of plain, boring oatmeal, so one morning I added some oatmeal cookie ingredients and it was a hit! I tend to leave out the sugar and salt for my small kids and then add a bit of the contraband for myself after serving them. Add more or less butter, sugar, etc. to your own taste.
