Apple Cinnamon Almond Oatmeal

Oh my, this tasted like Christmas morning!

Apple Cinnamon Almond Oatmeal


1/2 cup oats
1 cup soy milk
1 heaped tsp. brown sugar
1-2 Tbsp. agave syrup
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 apple, chopped
1-2 tsp. sliced almonds

1. put all the ingredients in a saucepan (cut 3/4 of the apple in small chunks, keep 1/4 of the apple & almonds for decorating)
2. bring to a boil, turn the heat to low and under stirring let simmer for 5-10 minutes
3. sprinkle with sliced almonds and apple slices

I will try Veganomicons Black Bean Quinoa Mango salad later, I can't wait!!!

Anything remeniscent of Christmas morning sounds good in my book, because Christmas is such a great day ;o). And you can't go wrong with oatmeal-- I'm copying this recipe down too!

Romina - Absolutely! I felt like turning on some christmas music or decorating a tree, ha ha!

Katie - Christmas truly is a wonderful day... Hopefully you'll enjoy it just as much as I did! I was yumm-ing along as I ate it. At some point my boyfriend was like "Oh come on, it can't be that good!" Ha ha!
Turn on some christmas music and I'm sure you'll feel like a kid on christmas morning =p

You finally made oatmeal!!!! It sounds so good. I think I'm going to go make a bowl right now - thanks for the idea. Though unfortunately not your wonderful sounding oatmeal as I don't have apples or almonds on hand. That actually makes me pretty sad your oatmeal sounds really good.

With food like this we can have Christmas every day.

Lizzy hat gesagt…

Jennifer - Yesss, I finally did it! And I used your omega oatmeal sort of as a guideline ;) So I have to thank you!
I'm sure any other fruit/nut would fit here, but the combination of cinnamon and apples is just something that always reminds me of christmas!

Ruby - Oh yay, now I'm excited to see if it'll live up to your standards. As far as I know you're an oatmeal specialist ;)

Lizzy hat gesagt…

Cookiemouse - Absolutely and it's very comforting to know!

Mmm... This looks really good. I was just thinking about how I needed a good oatmeal recipe. I always end up eating the instant crap because homemade oatmeal often tastes flavourless. Then I realized that's because I never use any real recipes! I'm copying this now. :)

VeggieGirl hat gesagt…

apples, cinnamon, almonds, oats... can't get any better than that!! looks scrumptious.

Lizzy hat gesagt…

Ashasarala - Hopefully you'll like it. I ate it this morning and couldn't help but drool over that cinnamony taste!

VeggieGirl - Thank you! I've been dying to try some blueberry oatmeal, yumm!

Whoa... I am totally not kidding when I say that I had the EXACT same thing for breakfast this morning, except I used maple syrup instead of brown sugar. So delicious & filling! I love starting my day with sweet, spicy oatmeal!! Great minds think alike. :)

Lizzy hat gesagt…

How awesome!!! =D

I'm running low on brown sugar so I think I might give maple syrup a try the next time.
