Apple Oatmeal with Dates and Almonds

Apple Oatmeal with Dates and Almonds

Ryan and I pretty much live on oatmeal or porridge during the winters. What could be better on a cold and/or rainy morning than a hot bowl of oatmeal?! This recipe is lovely because it elevates the normal bowl of porridge just a little. Kind of like haute cuisine for breakfast :)  OK, maybe that’s getting carried away, but it will as they say, stick to your ribs, and keep you going until lunchtime.

Serves 2

  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup oatmeal
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup vanilla soy milk, almond milk, or rice milk
  • 1/4 cup chopped dates
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • 1 apple, grated

1. Bring water to a boil. Add oatmeal, cinnamon, and salt.
2. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until liquid is absorbed (about 10 minutes).
3. Stir in remaining ingredients and let simmer for a few more minutes.
4. Serve hot.
