I have a confession: I love oatmeal. I don’t care if it’s “old people” food, thrown in with the likes of prunes and metamucil—I could still eat it for every meal.
The cool thing about it is that you can add anything you want…pears, walnuts, honey, agave, maple syrup, molasses, raisins, dried cranberries, nutmeg, vanilla…I could go on. It’s always going to be good eats. And it’s always good for you. It seems that everyone wins here.
APPLE PECAN OATMEAL
1/2 cup oatmeal (not instant) 1/2 cup soy milk 1/2 cup diced tart apple 1/4 cup pecans 1/8 cup coconut 1 tbs cinnamon stevia to taste pinch of salt
Heat the soy milk in a small sauce pan with the pinch of salt. When it boils, stir in the oatmeal and reduce the heat to low. Cook for about 8 minutes, or until the milk is absorbed and the oats are creamy. Remove from heat and stir in the apple, pecans, coconut, cinnamon, and stevia. Eat when it’s cooled off a little.
