Food for (Re)Fuel: Baked Apple Oatmeal

I’ve been eating a lot less oatmeal now that it’s so hot and humid outside, but this morning I decided to make one of my favorite oatmeal combinations: oatmeal, Cracklin Oat Bran cereal, and apple. Here’s my method:

  1. Mix 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats, 1/3 cup soy milk, 1/3 cup water, lots of cinnamon, and most of a chopped Red Delicious.
  2. Microwave for 1 min. 30 sec.
  3. Stir and add 1/3 cup Cracklin Oat Bran.
  4. Microwave 1 min. Go do ART home exercises while waiting for it to finish and cool down.
  5. Stir in a small spoonful of plain yogurt to cool it more and make it nice and creamy.

I also like to do this with banana, but I add that later in the nuking process because it doesn’t need as much time to cook as apple. Cracklin Oat Bran, while full of fiber, has a bit too much sugar to be considered a very healthy breakfast cereal. However it’s great in oatmeal because it breaks up and adds a nice cinnamony (yes, a word) sweetness to the whole bowl.
