The Perfect Oatmeal: Apple Raisin Walnut Cinnamon Maple

The Perfect Oatmeal: Apple, Raisin, Walnut, Cinnamon and Maple Syrup

The Best From My Nest... by Lisa Avant

(Serves 2)


1 Cup Extra Thick Rolled Oats (I used Bob's Red Mill Organic)

2 Cups Water

1/4 tsp Salt

1 Granny Smith Apple, skin on and diced to approximately 1/2" cubes (I leave skin on when using Organic)

1/2 Cup Raisins

1/2 Cup Walnuts

1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon

Maple Syrup to taste

Cream, Soy Milk, or any other kind of milk is Optional


1) Bring 2 cups of water and 1/4 tsp salt to a boil and add rolled Oats. Give it a stir and reduce heat to simmer.

2) Allow to cook for 5 minutes and add the apples. Give it another stir and cover with a lid. Cook an additional 2-5 minutes, depending upon the consistency that you prefer your oatmeal and apples.

3) Stir in Raisins and Ground Cinnamon.

4) Serve and top with Walnuts, Maple Syrup and/or a touch of Cream, Soy Milk, or regular milk. I personally prefer mine without any milk.
