Get ready for Apple Season - Super Oatmeal Breakfast
I'm looking forward to Autumn - I know, I know, it's only the beginning of August. However, the other day, I tried a new way of making and serving oatmeal cereal. Here's the recipe:
Super French Vanilla Oatmeal Breakfast
4 c. water
1/2 t. salt
2 c. Regular (not instant) Rolled Oats
1 T. ground Cinnamon
1/2 c. Dried Apples or 1 fresh Apple, peeled, cored and sliced
1/3. c. Raisins
Coffee Mate French Vanilla non-dairy creamer
Brown Sugar or Splenda
Place water, salt, apples and raisins in a 2-quart saucepan and bring to the boil, uncovered.
turn heat to Low and stir a little until boiling is calmed.
Cover and let cook on low for about 10 minutes.
Stir before serving....
yum....it looks good.
Sprinkle with sweetener (Splenda, brown or white sugar)....
add creamer or milk and Voila!
I had mine with creamer and Splenda and my favorite, de-caf Chai Tea. A creamy, cinnamony, chewy, satisfying way to enjoy oatmeal. What a way to lower cholesterol, eh?
