Sunday Breakfast Idea

Apple Pie-Spiced Oatmeal

This recipe provides 4 servings.


1)    2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2)    4 dates, pitted and finely chopped
3)    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4)    Pinch of ground allspice
5)    Pinch of nutmeg
6)    Pinch of sea salt
7)    2 apples, cored and cut into chucks
8)    1 ¾ cups 2% low-fat milk, plus extra to top oatmeal


1)    Put the oats, chopped dates, and spices into a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan with three-quarters of the apple chucks and add a pinch of sea salt. Pour in the milk and 1 ¾ cups hot water and stir over medium heat until the porridge begins to simmer.

2)    Simmer gently for approximately 15 minutes, stirring regularly for a creamy consistency. The apple chucks will collapse into the oatmeal and the liquid should all be absorbed.

3)    To serve, top with the remaining apple chunks. Serve with a little pitcher of extra milk on the side to top oatmeal.

Slight variations: Swap the cow’s milk for soy or rice milk...something to think about as an alternative.
