Do you enjoy oatmeal? I sure do! In its purest form oatmeal is known to provide antioxidants, and helps you to feel full (thanks to fiber)! It has other health benefits as well, but I especially love it because it’s filling and you can add so many different ingredients to it for flavor!

The recipe I want to share today is one of my favorite ways to prepare and enjoy oatmeal. I call it a hearty oatmeal bowl, because it is just that… hearty! Filled with dried fruit and nuts, and seasoned with cinnamon and brown sugar, how can you go wrong? I enjoy using dried apples in it, but you can substitute or add dried cranberries, peaches or blueberries, if you prefer! This oatmeal is simple to prepare and really delicious.

Making The Oatmeal

Bring 1 cup of milk and ¼ cup of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Once it begins to boil, add old fashioned oats, raisins, dried apples, toasted pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt to the pan. Stir these ingredients well, until incorporated into the liquid.

Milk and water are brought to a boil in a medium sized saucepan.Oats, raisins, apple, pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt are added to the milk in the pan.

Turn the heat to Medium-Low, and continue cooking the oatmeal mixture for between 5-7 minutes, or until it reaches YOUR desired consistency. As it cooks, the oatmeal will become creamy and will thicken.

The oatmeal and added ingredients cook in the saucepan until thickened.When the oatmeal is cooking to desired consistency, it is ready to be served.

Serve The Hearty Oatmeal Bowl

When done cooking, spoon portions into individual serving bowls, and sprinkle lightly with additional ground cinnamon, if desired. The raisins are plump, it’s sweetened with brown sugar, the toasted pecans add crunch, and the cinnamon and apples add great flavor to this hearty oatmeal bowl.

All in all, this is an incredibly simple, yet filling breakfast which will yield 3 small servings or 2 large servings. I really think you’re going to enjoy it!
