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.
