    Apple Oatmeal

    In this healthy oatmeal recipe, cook apples into your morning oatmeal and you’ll start the day right with whole grains and a serving of fruit.

    This Recipe Is:
    Ingredients
    Prep: 45 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes
    • 4  
      crisp apples, such as Jazz or Pink Lady, divided
    • 1   cup
      steel-cut oats
    • 4   cups
      water
    • 3   tablespoons
      packed brown sugar, divided
    • 1/2   teaspoon
      ground cinnamon
    • 1/4   teaspoon
      salt
    • 1/2   cup
      nonfat plain Greek yogurt
    Instructions
    1. Shred 2 apples using the large holes of a box grater, leaving the core behind.
    2. Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add oats and cook, stirring, until lightly toasted, about 2 minutes. Add water and the shredded apples; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes.
    3. Meanwhile, chop the remaining 2 apples.
    4. After the oats have cooked for 10 minutes, stir in the chopped apples, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, cinnamon and salt; continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the apples are tender and the oatmeal is quite thick, 15 to 20 minutes more. Divide the oatmeal among 4 bowls. Top each portion with 2 tablespoons yogurt and 3/4 teaspoon brown sugar.

     

    Tip
    Shopping Tip: Choose unbruised, firm apples with smooth skin. Store for up to 4 months in the refrigerator.
