Terrific and heathy way to start your day! Adapted from recipe found in an Australian magazine website. Posted for ZWT8 Autralia/New Zealand
- 2⁄3 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup milk, low fat
- 1⁄3 cup water
- 1 apple, cored and grated
- 1 teaspoon orange rind, grated
- 2 tablespoons sultanas (or raisins)
- 1 pinch ground cinnamon (optional)
- Put all ingredients into a large microwaveable bowl and stir. Cook in the microwave on high for 3 minutes, stir and cook for 2 more minutes.
- Allow to sit for 2-3 minutes, then sprinkle with cinnamon and serve.
- You can replace the apple with bananas, berries, peaches, or any fruit you enjoy.
I really liked this. I used banana and raisins in mine and drizzled with some honey. I know I'll be making this often so I can try some of the other fruits. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT 8.
Delicious and healthy breakfast. I love being able to cook the oatmeal in the microwave. I combined all the ingredients and then saw that the cinnamon was supposed to be sprinkled on at the end but I don't think that made a big difference in the flavor.I found that the shredded apple cooks up and is almost undetectable. I like biting into pieces of apple so I would chop it next time. The apple and raisins made the sweetness exactly right for me. Made for ZWT8
Very tasty, this provided a good healthy foundation for my day (some spicy stuff coming later, so I needed to be nice to myself for breakfast). My rating is based on the presentation of the ingredients and the directions. If low-fat milk is to be used, it should be listed as the ingredient so that the recipe's nutritional values will be accurate, and the ingredient will show up as intended on a shopping list; I used whole milk because I used the Shopping List function. Step 1 of the directions said to combine all ingredients; when I got to step 2, which asked me to sprinkle with cinnamon, I was confused, and decided not to add more. I used a very large Pyrex measuring bowl, and the recipe yielded 2 cups. I liked that this used rolled oats instead of quick-cooking oats. This recipe could become a perennial breakfast for me. When I run out of rolled oats, I may be inspired to buy oat groats and split them using either the Vitamix dry-grains container or an Electrolux Verona Assistent Mixer with a flaker mill to have the very freshest oat taste with thicker, chewier flakes. For reducing cholesterol, this is the very best way to begin the day. Thank you for sharing. Made for The Wild Bunch for ZWT8's visit to Australia/New Zealand.
