This is quick to make, easy to do, and so much more delicious than a packet of flavored oatmeal. This recipe has a whole serving of fruits, which, with the nuts, will lower the glycemic...

Up the water-to-oatmeal ratio to 2¼ parts water to 1 part oatmeal, to get a lighter, and creamier consistency,.


  • 1 ⅓ cups rolled oats (⅓ cup dry for 1 serving)
  • 2 ⅔ cup water (⅔ cup water for ⅓ cup oatmeal)
  • Generous pinch sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon golden raisins
  • 1 tablespoon dried cranberries
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 2 apples (try tart Granny Smiths or Braeburns)
  • 2 tablespoons almonds, sliced, dry toasted
  • 2 bananas, thinly sliced
  • Milk of your choice, or yogurt to taste

  1. Mix the oats, water, salt, raisins, cranberries, and cinnamon in a pan. Bring to a boil, stir well and then lower the heat to a low simmer. Cook, covered, for about 10 minutes, stirring the oatmeal from time to time so that it doesn''t stick.
  2. While the oatmeal is cooking, grate the apple using the coarsest bore. When the oatmeal has cooked, stir in the grated apple until it is well mixed. Cover and turn the heat off. Leave the oatmeal for 5 minutes to steam. Serve sprinkled with almonds and sliced bananas, and with milk or yogurt on the side.
