Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

There are few things that feel like comfort food to me more than warm oatmeal. Now, normally I would add tons of brown sugar and raisins to my oatmeal, but now that I am a Trim Healthy Mama, or on my way to being one anyway, I no longer use brown sugar OR raisins, as they are not conducive to weight-loss. So I got creative and made this… it’s apple cinnamon oatmeal. Apples, and cinnamon are a great combination. Add them to creamy, warm oatmeal and it’s a match made in heaven…And it’s perfect for this time of year! Just look how yummy this looks!

Here is the delicious recipe…

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal (Click HERE to print recipe)

Get This:

  • 2 c. water
  • dash sea salt
  • 1 c. gluten-free old fashion oats
  • 1 small apple, washed and diced
  • 3-4 packets sweetener of choice
  • splash of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • cinnamon to taste

Do This:

  1. In a medium size sauce pan, bring 2 c. water to a boil.
  2. While waiting wash your apple well and dice.
  3. Once water is boiling, add oats to water and boil about 1 minute.
  4. Add diced apple and sweetener; continue boiling apples and oats for another 4 minutes or so.
  5. Once apples and oats are done, take off heat and spoon into bowls.
  6. Pour desired amount of almond milk over oats and sprinkle with cinnamon.
  7. This will serve 2 people.
  8. Enjoy!

Notes:  You could do this with any fruit…peaches, pears, blueberries. Adjust cooking time accordingly. The oats still need 5 minutes, just add fruit in later…for all my THM’s out there, this is a fabulous ‘E’ breakfast (lunch or dinner works, too)! I really hope y’all will try this, it’s sooo good and perfect for this time of year!

Live, laugh, love and be kind! xoxo
