Makes 4 Servings
OK, so it has no peppers, tomatoes or onions. But it’s thick and hearty, long-simmering goodness. That’s kind of like chili, right?
- 3 cups water
- 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1-1/3 cups regular rolled oats
- 1 small apple, chopped
- 1/4 cup pitted whole dates, snipped
- 2 tbsp. sliced almonds
- 1 tbsp. brown sugar
- 2-2/3 cups skim milk
In a medium saucepan combine water, cinnamon, and salt. Bring to boiling; stir in oats. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let stand, covered, till of desired consistency. Divide oatmeal among 4 serving bowls. Top each bowl with chopped apple, snipped dates, sliced almonds, and brown sugar. Divide milk among serving bowls.
