Apple Pie Oatmeal
Who likes a bowl of Oatmeal?
Oatmeal has never been my favorite, but who can squabble when there are health benefits?
I created a new recipe for myself.
When making oatmeal, instead of adding water, I add 3/4 cup of quality Apple cider with 1/4 cup of milk. Before cooking I add a hand full of raisins. I do this before cooking so they plump up in the oatmeal. Otherwise if added after cooking, you have dry raisins.
I also will add in pie type spices such as cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. (Quantity, maybe about 1/2teaspoon for cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon for ginger, and 1/8 teaspoon for nutmeg. Change these amounts if not to your liking.)
Quality Apple cider means to me, Apple cider that is full of the mother at the bottom, no added sugar, and it has a good balance of sweet with sour. Many Apple ciders sold in the grocery store are too sweet with little apple flavor. More like drinking a glass of corn syrup! I like a balance.
One of our favorite Apple ciders for this is sold by Riveridge found at Walmart.
I added milk instead of water because it gives the oatmeal a creamier consistency.
I cooked the oatmeal, raisins, apple cider, milk, and spices.
After it was done, I added chopped Walnuts on top. The Walnuts add quality fat, Omega 3 fatty acids, and a good taste.
I like to eat my oatmeal with milk on top of it. If you wish use a heavier milk such as 2% or even 4% for more enjoyment.
A bowl of Apple pie goodness for breakfast!
No need for sugar on top. The Apple cider and raisins gives this oatmeal lots of sweetness.
