1-1/4 cups rolled oats

Put butter in 7" round shallow dish,microwave on high for 1 to 1-1/2 mins or until melted. Stir in the sugar and oats and mix thoroughly. Press down evenly.

Microwave on high 4 to 5 mins or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean; give the dish a quarter-turn every 1 min during cooking. Leave in the dish to cool slightly until firm, then mark into wedges.

Here is a recipe my family loves using oats.

No Bake Cookies? They are delish & easy to make.

Boil 1 stick butter, 2 cups sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa & 1/2 cup milk for 2 1/2 minutes. Stir constantly!!! Stir in 1/2 cup peanut butter & 3 cups oatmeal. 1 tsp vanilla Drop on wax paper & let cool. Optional: use 1 1/2 c. oatmeal & 1 1/2 c. coconut instead of 3 c. oatmeal Nuts can be added.

Thanks again for all the ideas! Is it okay to use "quick oats" instead of regular oatmeal in these recipes? Thanks.

Love you, Old Git! You bring a smile to my days with your contributions. Thanks again...I've thanked you before, but you keep your kindness coming.

When my kids were little, to get them to LOVE oatmeal for breakfast, I made it this way...made it up as I went along, actually, until it got to be this little gem:

BOIL: Oatmeal and water in proportion Brown sugar to taste pinch salt dash vanilla brown or white raisins tbs. butter

Serve with milk or cream over top, or eat as is.

This is so like a dessert that they begged for more!
