Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

I wanted to share my everyday breakfast for a long time now. Since we are talking about whole grains this week, I thought this simple and humble breakfast of mine should be showcased for Day 7 of BM#14.

As is evident from the name, this is a quick and easy recipe and can be customized to individual preferences adding whatever flavors one might choose. This happens to be my personal favorite! 

Initially we used to get the instant oatmeal packets in various flavors and later on realized that we were loading up on unnecessary sugar. So found this simple solution to enjoy my favorite breakfast with the goodness of oats and apples. :)

Note that this can be made on the stove top (just cook on the stove top until done takes about 7-8 min under constant supervision) as well but I choose the easier and faster way. 

Before the easy-breezy recipe, take a peek at what I have posted for the past week.

Day 1 - Jonna Rotte ~Jowar Ki Roti
Day 2 - Barley Flakes Pulao
Day 3 - Ragi Idiyappam
Day 4 - Quinoa-Strawberry Scones

Rolled Oats 1/2 cup
Apple finely chopped 1/2 cup

Method Of Preparation -

In a 4 cup microwave bowl, add all the ingredients and microwave on high for 2 min.

Remove, stir and microwave for another 2 min in 30 sec intervals, stirring in between.

Let it stand in the microwave for a minute and it is ready to be served. Add more warm milk/water to adjust the consistency to your preference.

Garnish with more chopped apple and/or grated almond and/or sweetener of your choice.

  16. Healthy one for sure. Though I love oat flaked cereal, I have not able to come in terms with this mushy stuff. I prepare it just for my husband who loves it with a pinch of salt.
