A delicious bowl of oatmeal with all fall goodness – fresh cranberries, raisins and lots of maple syrup! All you need is few basic ingredients and 10 mins!
Let’s talk about our undying love for oatmeal. Growing up in India, oats weren’t a part of daily routine or should I say oats were rarely in food scene there at that time. Recently I have started seeing them everywhere and I see companies selling lots of spicy savory versions of oats for Indian market. We had a similar version of oatmeal made using cracked wheat instead of oats and then cooked almost exactly the same way. It was and till date , is still one of my favorite comforting breakfast meals. Mostly I like to cook it just with milk and sugar just like oatmeal but there are days I crave a simple warm dinner and I turn it into savory by adding peas and spices.
Ronak on the other hand grew up eating oats and he absolutely loves eating plain oats with milk, sugar and good amount of cinnamon. Though at times I have seen him sneak some homemade chocolate syrup into this.
Now coming on to today’s post, I was sent this amazing 4-20 cup RICE & HOT CEREAL COOKER by Hamilton Beach. For long I was looking for a good rice cooker but never knew that I can even cook our oatmeal in here! This equipment has made me love oatmeal a lot more as all it takes is 5 mins of total cooking time. I have been playing around with lots of flavors but this is one of our absolute favorite till date.
Old fashioned oats, milk (use plain or almond milk as per taste or a mix of water and milk), fresh cranberries and raisins are added to the rice cooker and let the rice cooker do it’s magic! 5 mins is all you need to get yourself a piping hot bowl of oatmeal with all the fall goodness. I like to enjoy it with a heavy drizzle of maple syrup and some more raisins!
Hamilton Beach was kind enough to offer one of the amazing 4-20 cup Rice & Hot Cereal Cooker to one lucky winner!

I LOVE oatmeal too – had it for breakfast! This looks so divine! P.S. the next time you make them, toast your oats first. I found that out today and it enhanced it so much!!
Brenda Haines saysOctober 22, 2016 at 6:50 PM
I love cranberries, I’m so glad it’s that season again! We have bogs near by us too.

Cinnamon rolls are one of my favorite foods!

I grew up with a rice cooker in my home, but when I got my own home I never bought one. I love that it cooks oatmeal and other non-rice foods, so I definitely will look into getting one.
Monica saysOctober 24, 2016 at 9:49 AM
I also love oatmeal and couldn’t live without it. Love your toppings and the flavors here. It’s really lovely how we can customize something as basic as oatmeal and I think it surprises people just how good it is!
Karen Yartremski saysOctober 24, 2016 at 7:08 PM
I love a bowl of oatmeal on a cold winter morning, the warnth of the oatmeal sticks to your ribs making you feel so snuggly warm. The rasins, will give it just enough sweetness and the crainberries a hint of tartness, making a partry in our mouths. I can’t wait to get the ingredients to make this. I WOULD LOVE a rice cooker so that I could try the other items you have shown made with rice, Thank you,
denise saysOctober 26, 2016 at 10:38 AM
I always burn the oatmeal on the stove, so a cooker is a great idea. I did try oatmeal cooked with cardamom seeds and cloves the other day, yum but needs something else. Maybe you have some good ideas?
naivecookcooks saysOctober 27, 2016 at 8:48 AM
Hey Denise! I would suggest stick with cardamom only and make sure to crush the cardamom pods a little bit before putting in simmering oats + liquid (water or milk or both combination). Cardamom and cloves both don’t really go well together. So try just with cardamom and you will love it 🙂
