Oatmeal Royale

I slightly tweaked this healthy and delicious recipe from a book written in the '90's by Robert Haas, called "Eat to Win". This is our favorite breakfast - no adding of sugar or milk necessary! I add 2-3 ice cubes to the pan after the cereal is cooked but before putting it into bowls; this both cools it down enough to eat and makes the oatmeal VERY creamy.****UPDATE***: Since submitting this recipe, we have discovered how much better it is with steel cut oats! Changes I now make: 2 cups water to 1/4 cup steel-cut oats, extra cinnamon (to taste), add 1 tablespoon ground flax seed. Cook the oats for 20 minutes, then add apples and cook for 5 minutes more. Add bananas, flax seed & seasonings after you remove from heat. Omit the ice cubes, but add extra hot water if needed to make creamy.

ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 12 cup orange juice
  • 14 cup raisins
  • 1 medium-to-large apple, cut into small pieces (I like Red Delicious)
  • 23 cup regular oatmeal (not instant)
  • 13 cup Raisin Bran cereal (original recipe calls for regular bran)
  • 14 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 medium banana, sliced in half lengthwise, then chopped
  • 1 -3 ice cube (optional)

directions

  • Combine the water and orange juice in a medium pan.
  • Add raisins and chopped apples; bring to a boil.
  • Stir in oatmeal and Raisin Bran, reduce heat, and cook for 6 minutes. Stir every 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat; mix in cinnamon and banana pieces.
  • Optional: Add ice cube(s) and stir until they are gone.
  • I like this smooth and creamy; add a little hot water if too dry.
