Spiced Apple Oatmeal

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by C Powell

A marvelous breakfast for oatmeal lovers and others. I used regular oatmeal, cooked for about 20 minutes and one tbsp of molasses and one tsp of Slenda, a sugar substitute. You can use more nutmeg, up to 1/2 tsp.

Whew! An extremely filling and nutritious breakfast, but it was a bit too much for me. I halved the recipe and made this in the microwave. I boiled water on HIGH for 3 minutes, and then added 1/8 teaspoon salt (according to package instructions) and oatmeal and cooked for an additional 3 minutes, stirring approximately every 45 seconds. After adding the spices and apple, I cooked for another minute. I omitted the ginger since I'm not too fond of it. I had to use a "sweet" apple because we don't get Granny Smiths here, and so it ended up a bit too sweet for me.
