  • 1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp molasses
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp butter (optional)


  • 1 Tbsp Cream Cheese or Neufchatel Cheese , softened
  • 1 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp milk


  1. In a large microwave safe bowl, combine oats, milk, water, brown sugar, cinnamon, molasses, and salt. Cook oatmeal mixture in the microwave for 3 1/2 minutes. Remove from microwave, stir in optional butter and allow to cool several minutes. 
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, using a fork, whisk together cream cheese, powdered sugar and milk until well blended. Drizzle or pipe icing over oatmeal (if you'd like to make the swirl as I did in the photos just make an light indentation in oatmeal with a chopstick, when it has cooled slightly, then pipe icing into indentation). Sprinkle lightly with additional cinnamon if desired. Serve warm.
  3. Additional serving suggestion: if you like chopped pecans or raisins in your cinnamon rolls feel free to sprinkle some in.
