This is a warm and wonderful breakfast for chilly mornings. The grated apple is the magic. I put a drizzle of SF maple syrup on top. Yum. It's like a warm Grandma hug.
Shelly's Oatmeal with Grated Apple
1 cup oatmeal (McCann's Steel Cut Quick Cook Irish Oatmeal accept no substitute)
2 1/3 cups water
Pinch of salt
1 medium apple, coarsely grated
1/3 cup milk (I use vanilla soy milk)
1/2 teaspoon butter
Combine the oatmeal, water and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add the grated apple and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the milk and butter. Stir well and cook for 1 minute. Serve immediately with a drizzle of SF maple syrup and little more milk. I use Cary's Sugar Free Maple Syrup.
Oatmeal is one of the world's healthiest foods.
I had a headache today and this totally hit the spot.
