Better Bites: Breakfast Week Edition: Do It Yourself Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Better Bites: Breakfast Week: Do It Yourself Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

So let's start off Breakfast Week with a healthy alternative that covers Better Bites as well!

As a child I loved apple cinnamon oatmeal, but as I've gotten older I've gotten more into a do it yourself way of thinking when it comes to food. It ends up tasting better and it's better for you than the highly processed alternatives.

A few years ago I started making my own apple and cinnamon oatmeal and really loved the results. Big chunks of apples...Lots of yummy cinnamon...What's not to like? Who says a healthy breakfast has to be boring or taste like cardboard?

What You'll Need:
1/2 an apple, chopped
1-2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of honey (or any other natural sweetner that you like...Natural brown sugar or maple syrup work well too!)
1/2 cup of whole grain oats
1 cup of water

(Note: This version is completely in the microwave....Healthy and quick...How fabulous is that?)

Better Bites: Breakfast Week: Do It Yourself Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal: Apples

Place your apples in a microwaveable glass dish with cinnamon and honey. Cook for 1 minute or until apples are tender.

Add oatmeal and water and cook for 1-2 minutes until water is absorbed and oatmeal is soft. Stir to mix and serve immediately.

Notes: You can add in 1/3 cup of raisins if you like.

This is one of my favorite breakfasts when I'm in the mood for something warm. I'm not a big breakfast eater in general, but oatmeal is a standby for the days that I want something "hearty"!
