Here is a recipe for some extra special oatmeal. Irish oatmeal has a chewy texture and a really nutty flavor, it's delicious. This recipe gives them a little extra boost. They take a little longer to cook, so I usually make a big batch, so that I have leftovers to warm up throughout the week.

Extra Special Irish Oats
4 1/8 cup Water
1 cup Traditional Irish Oatmeal
2 Tbsp Ground flax seeds
2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Combine all the ingredients in a medium saucepan and stir. Over medium/high heat bring to a boil. Stir again, then reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Avoid over cooking so that they maintain that nice nutty flavor. Serve with almond milk, a little Earth Balance buttery spread. You can also add blueberries or sliced banana and nuts. Makes 4 servings.
