Apple Cinnamon Microwave Oatmeal
This healthy recipe comes from NDSU Extension Service.


2 c. rolled oats*

4 c. low-fat milk

1/8 tsp. salt

2 unpeeled apples, chopped

1 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

(*) Old-fashioned oats will provide a chewier texture, while quick oats will result in a smoother texture.


Mix together all ingredients in a large microwave-safe bowl.  Microwave on high for five to six minutes, stirring every two minutes, until oats are soft and most of the liquid has been absorbed.  Spoon into bowls and serve while hot.  Top with brown sugar if desired.
