Apple Spice Oatmeal
Prep time: 5 minutesCooking time: 10 minutesTotal time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

1
apple
2 cups
nonfat or 1% milk or water
1 cup
quick cooking or old fashioned rolled oats
1⁄8 teaspoon
salt
1⁄8 teaspoon
cinnamon
1 Tablespoon
brown sugar
1⁄8 teaspoon
nutmeg (optional)

Directions

  1. Rinse the apple, remove the core and cut into small chunks (about 1 ½ cups).
  2. Bring the water or milk to a boil in a saucepan.
  3. Add the oatmeal, salt and apple chunks. Cook over medium heat for 1 minute if using quick cooking oats or 7 to 10 minutes if using old fashioned rolled oats. Stir a couple times while cooking.
  4. Remove from heat. Stir in cinnamon, brown sugar and nutmeg, if desired.
  5. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Notes

  • To increase the apple flavor, use apple juice for all or part of the water. Mixing apple juice with milk may cause milk to curdle.
  • Add bite-size dried fruit pieces like raisins, apricots or cranberries in step 3, or sprinkle on top when serving.
  • Sprinkle chopped nuts on top when serving.
