Oatmeal Cookie Oatmeal

I love oatmeal raisin cookies. Unfortunately, my hips don't seem to like them as much as I do! However, as always, I've found a way to work around that little problem to create a perfect healthy breakfast treat - and when done correctly can taste JUST LIKE an oatmeal cookie, without all of the bad stuff. With the weather getting colder, it's the perfect way to coax you out of your warm bed. Plus, you'll stay full until lunch time!

Oatmeal Cookie Oatmeal (1 serving)
1/2 Cup Old Fashioned Oats
1 cup water
1/4 cup raisins
1/8 cup nuts (crushed or uncrushed)
2 tbs Splenda
Combine oats, water, and raisins. Stir together with a spoon. Microwave on medium for 6 minutes, or until oatmeal is cooked. Add nuts and sugar/sweetener. Adjust to taste, and enjoy your oatmeal raisin cookies in a bowl!
