Apple, Craisin, Brown Sugar Oatmeal







It's light, hearty and healthy.

Apple, Craisin, Brown Sugar Oatmeal

Makes about 2 C.
{half for single serving}

1 apple sliced and diced
1 handful of Craisins
1 C. Old Fashioned Oats
2 C. water
dash of salt
1 loose Tbsp. brown sugar*

Directions:

1. Put oats, apples, water, dash of salt, brown sugar in microwave-safe dish;
cook for 3 minutes.
2.  Throw in the Craisins and stir together.
3. Serve.

Easy as that!

*Note--You may like more brown sugar. 
I was being conservative,
and it made it perfectly not too sweet.

This recipe was inspired by McD's Oatmeal.  Gooood.

This sounds so good. I'm trying it in the morning.

I've got a recipe that I tweaked and added a lot of stuff to for Baked Oatmeal. It's cooked in a sheet cake pan. I'll have to blog the recipe so you can try it.

Hugs,

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
