Oatmeal is one of these things you should always have in your pantry. It’s versatile and it’s one of the healthiest things there is. It doesn’t even need milk, it tastes good made with water. And if you get used to it made this way you’ll never need milk again. Keeping fresh milk in the house is pricey and it is an extra thing to keep in mind when it comes to expiration dates but this way you don’t ever need to bother.
If you are used to milk and you can’t imagine having water based oatmeal, it’s perfectly fine. You can use milk. You can get used to it without it, though, if you gradually reduce milk content in the recipe mixing it with water using less and less each time until you no longer need it.
