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.
