Apple Cinamon Oatmeal

Oatmeal

Apples are naturally sweet, helping to curb our cravings for sweets in a natural way. They have fiber and Vitamin C.

Cinnamon has many beneficial properties, including a mild anti-inflammatory effect, anti-microbial properties (helps stop the growth of bacteria as well as fungi), better blood sugar control, the odor boosts brain activity, and is an excellent source of manganese.

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats (or steel cut oats*)
  • 2/3 cup liquid (1 cup liquid for steel cut oats*)
  • 1/2 an apple cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • Dash of salt

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients to a small pot.
  2. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer and cook until soft, about 5 to 7 minutes (about 20 minutes for steel cut oats*).

*Steel Cut Oats are a much heartier cereal. They have more fiber & nutrients. They have a wonderful, chewy texture and you will stay full longer when you eat steel cut oats.
