Apple Pie Oatmeal

This is my go to oatmeal over the colder months.  It is super easy to make, low in points and tastes like you're eating dessert for breakfast.

Oatmeal Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1 mashed banana
  • 1/2 teaspsoon chia seeds
  • 3/4 cup water
  • Combine all the oatmeal ingredients into a microwave safe bowl and mix well using a fork.  I find that using a fork gets a bit of air into the mixture with results in a creamier texture.  
  • Place in the microwave and cook for 90 seconds, depending on how you like your oatmeal you might need to cook a little less or more.

Cooked Apple Ingredients
  • 1 apple diced, it's up to you if you peel it or not
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 packet of sweetener of choice (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • Combine all the cooked apple ingredients into a microwave safe bowl and mix together well.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a plate and microwave for 90 seconds.  Take the mixture out, stir and put it back into the microwave covered for another 90 seconds.
