Apple & Cranberry Oatmeal Recipe

14 Nov

In the Fall and Winter months, it gets SOOOO cold up here. I really like making a hot and hearty breakfast on those mornings to warm me up. Every once in a while I make my oatmeal with apples and cranberries and not only does it taste good, it also reminds me of the holidays. Here’s how I make mine:

Ingredients

  • Oatmeal (whichever you prefer)
  • 1 apple (peeled and chopped) – this is for 2 people so adjust accordingly
  • Dried cranberries
  • Pecans – I like to chop these up
  • Maple syrup – about 1 tbsp
  • Almond milk – probably about 1/4 cup (obviously, you could use regular milk, soy, etc., I just prefer the almond as it has a little bit of a sweetness to it)
  • Cinnamon

Instructions

  • Cook your oatmeal according to the instructions on the package (typically 2 cups water to 1 cup of oatmeal for 2 servings) – I like to use a little less water than what it calls for so that when I add the milk, it’s not too liquidy
  • When you have about a minute left on your oatmeal, stir in the apple, cranberries and almond milk
  • When the oatmeal is done cooking, stir in the pecans, cinnamon (a healthy pinch should do), and maple syrup

Done and done!
