Oatmeal with Apples
My girls love instant oatmeal with fruit in it however I don't like the junk that is in the cheaper versions and the organic versions are just too expensive.
Last week I decided to make my daughter a homemade version.
I started with 1 red apple that I cored and diced. I sauteed the apple in a skillet that had been sprayed with canola oil.
While I did this I cooked 1/4 cup dry quick outs per the label on the container.
When the oats were cooked I combined them with the sauteed apples, a tsp of cinnamon, a TBS of raw honey and a splash of almond milk.
This was lightly sweetened and my daughter loved it. The bowl was much heartier that what comes in one of those little instant packages. We will be doing more of this in the future using other fill-ins.
