Fall is upon us and there is nothing like a warm filling breakfast to jump start your day! I love Bob's Redmill gluten free oats! Any regular oatmeal will do for this recipe but for some the celiacs out there like me make sure its gf of course :)
All I do for this simple breakfast is take 1/2 cup of oats and boil them with 1 cup of water, 1 apple diced up, some cinnamon, and 2 packets of truvia. The way the apple cooks with the oatmeal and cinnamon just makes this oatmeal taste like a piece of warm apple pie.
You know its done when the water is gone and the oatmeal is soft, if you prefer it softer just add more water.
The entire bowl of oatmeal you get is only 4 points! (I weigh the apple and use point worth some apples may be 2 points)
That is it super simple, super quick and very yummy apple pie oatmeal as I like to call it :)
I usually pair this with some scrambled egg whites for protein and I feel full for hours!!!
I made the same thing with peaches one time and it was yummy too! I want to try some pumpkin next. Oatmeal is something so simple and healthy and when paired with the right combination it can be very tasty too!
