For this recipe I use Light Silk and a rather coarse grater for the apples. I have a real sweet tooth so I add a teaspoon of splenda, but it's just a matter of personal preference.
- 1⁄3 cup rolled oats
- 1⁄3 cup low-fat milk or 1⁄3 cup soymilk
- 1⁄4 cup wheat bran
- 1⁄2 apple, grated
- 2 tablespoons applesauce
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄8 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄3-1 cup water
- Mix oats, milk, applesauce, and water (as needed).
- Microwave for 1 minute.
- Stir in bran, grated apple, cinnamon, and extra water.
- Cook, stirring each minute, for 3-4 minutes.
- Stir in vanilla.
This was a lovely breakfast on a cold winter morning! I used almond milk instead of regular milk, but it worked out fine. I also added a packet of Truvia. My grater didn't seem too keen on grating the apple, so I just chopped it up instead, but I think I quite liked having the pieces of apple in there. It did taste a little "branny," which I don't mind; but if someone does mind that, then adding more vanilla or some sweetener is a must. Thanks for posting!
