I’ve blogged about oatmeal before. It is cheap, sustaining, healthy and quite adaptable. Some days I want it for supper too! Our current oatmeal recipe that we eat every second day (alternating with cream of wheat) is an apple/cinnamon mix sweetened with a dab of honey. I also add an egg to boost protein and creaminess. I think I invented that 🙂
Soaked Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
The night before, soak 2/3 cups oats in 1 1/2 cups water and a tablespoon of yogurt liquid or apple cider vinager
In the morning, bring to a boil and add 1 apple, grated, and a couple of shakes of cinnamon. Cook until done and take off heat.
Off heat, stir in 1/3 cup yogurt and 2 tbsp honey. Once that is combined, beat in one egg. It will be very glossy and “wet” looking at first, but after a couple of minutes it will very gently cook and combine with the oatmeal. You might see some streaks of white egg protein, or you might not.
