  • Remove oats from heat and immediately stir in walnuts and raisins. Stir in agave nectar, vanilla extract, and cinnamon.

  • Divide oat mixture into 4 portions in bowls. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight, up to 5 days.

  • When ready to prepare, add 2 tablespoons milk to each portion. Heat in a microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds, stirring halfway through cook time.

Cook's Note:

You can use brown sugar instead of agave nectar if preferred.
