What do you have for breakfast?

When I was a kid, my favourite breakfast Instant Quaker Oatmeal--apple and cinnamon.  My sister used to eat it dry, right out of the package--do you still do that Lisa?? :)

In my quest to find things made with a little less additives and preservatives (and of course easier on the pocket book..) I developed this easy to make Microwave Oatmeal--it is even faster than the Instant Quaker--that is if you are waiting for the kettle to boil!


1/3 cup quick cooking rolled oats (**not "old-fashioned, make sure they are quick cook)
2/3 cup water
pinch salt
pinch or 2 cinnamon
1 apple chopped finely
brown sugar

In a microwave safe bowl with cover, combine all ingredients except sugar.  Microwave on high for 2 minutes.  Remove and top with as much sugar and/or milk that you like.  That's it--so easy!

Tip:  you can substitute raisins or raspberries or just about any other fruit that you like for this one!  Great topped with nuts or dried fruit  or even just a little jam instead of  the sugar...
