Weight Watchers Apple Spice Oatmeal

I really like steel cut oats now that I've finally tried them. I need to make them more often - the time factor is usually the reason we don't have this much. The weather has gotten colder, so this weekend was a good time to have a warm breakfast. This recipe comes from FatFree Vegan Kitchen. I'll be trying the Cherry Pie Oatmeal, too - but probably turn it into blueberry pie since I still have a freezer full of blueberries :)

I ended up cooking the oatmeal for 40 minutes and added a spoonful of brown sugar to my bowl. I needed some kind of sweetness, so I didn't quite make the 3 point bowl.

1/2 c. Steel Cut Oats
2 c. water
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1 large apple, chopped

Put all ingredients in a medium-sized pot. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to very low. Cover and simmer for about 30-45 minutes, or until oats are tender and water is mostly absorbed. Serve with sweetener of your choice with a little freshly grated nutmeg on top. Serves 2.

Just the kind of breakfast recipe I've been looking for...

caYou can make oatmeal and microwave it later to heat it up - I never thought of that until I did the 6 week body makeover (not an endorsement).

Looks like a nice and hearty breakfast.
