Apple Pie Oatmeal

Submitted by: LOUISATHELAST

Introduction

This a simple, nutritious breakfast. It has a similar flavor to flavored instant oatmeal packets, without the nutritional compromise that those entail. It takes only a few minutes to prepare, so make the time in the morning and eat a filling breakfast that will keep you going until lunch!

Please note that I am using real brown sugar in this recipe. Some may choose to use artificial sweeteners, which will alter the calorie contents, although not significantly. I so very much prefer the taste of real sugar that I'm willing to eat some during the course of the day, as long as I don't go overboard. I also prefer to use whole foods whenever possible.

Ingredients

    -1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oatmeal (not instant or "minute")
    -1 cup water
    -2 tsp brown sugar (packed)
    -2 tsp cinnamon
    -1 tsp ground ginger
    -1 tsp ground cloves
    -1 pinch salt
    -1/3 of a fresh apple, diced small

Directions

In a small saucepan, bring the water to a rolling boil over high heat. Add the oats, the apple, the salt, and the spices, and reduce the heat to medium. Stirring occasionally, cook until the excess water is cooked out and the oatmeal is at the favored consistency for you (usually about five minutes).

Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the sugar. When the sugar is fully blended into the oatmeal, transfer to a bowl and enjoy. I like putting 1/4 cup of 2% milk over the oatmeal. You can too, but remember to track the calories from the milk!
