Oatmeal is dry September = Apples (+ Oatmeal)

When I was in a college I did an Outward Bound expedition in the mountains of the Pacific Crest in Washington State. Every morning we got oatmeal ... and by the end of 22 days of trekking, we were connoisseurs of oatmeal. Fresh fruit was a luxury for new supplies, so we made do with dried apples and cranberries. We also had cashews, almonds and peanuts ... and butter. I always like a good bowl of oatmeal, and when, in September and the season is now Apple is a perfect time to combine the two for breakfast. I made a pot of oatmeal in the morning and put the setting in small bowls so children can add their own. We had apples, cranberries, nuts, raisins, almonds, brown sugar and syrup.

The following recipe for oatmeal porridge with oatmeal (slightly better type fast or instantaneous), and the crock pot, but you can do on the stove (which is how I did today). What is your favorite supplements?

Oatmeal apple (8 servings)

# 3 cups oats

# 5 cups of water

# 1 teaspoon cinnamon

# 1 / 2 cup brown sugar

# 2 apples - peeled and cored and diced

# 1 cup raisins

# 1 / 2 cup chopped walnuts

# 2 tablespoons honey

Spray crockpot with nonstick spray unless otherwise specified in the manual crockpot.

Mix all ingredients together crockpot - with the exception of nuts and honey. Cook on low 7-8 hours ... during the night.

Wake up. Stir in nuts and honey and serve hot with a little milk and sprinkle with additional brown sugar one.

If you plan to sleep, add an extra cup of water 1 / 3 for each hour over 8 oatmeal you leave unattended. This will help ensure that oatmeal is dry.
