Good Morning Oatmeal

published by Angelgirlpj on Jan 20, 2012

I read the recipe for Good Morning Oatmeal in the American Profile section of our South Bend Tribune and knew I had to try it. Breakfast is an important meal and most American’s are like me and in too much of a hurry to enjoy it. Dress up your next batch of oatmeal by making Good Morning Oatmeal.

Things you will need:

  • 1 1/2 cups of Apple or Pear Juice
  • 1/2 (6 ounces) package of mixed dried fruit
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 firm ripe pear cored and chopped.
  • 2 1/2 cups 2% milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups quick oats
  • 2 (6 ounce)nonfat vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 cup almond slivers
  1. With diabetes and high blood pressure in my family tree, and oatmeal being good for lowering your cholesterol and blood pressure, I thought I would try it. Get out all ingredients and a saucepan.
  2. In a saucepan, combine juice, dried fruit, sugar (if using) and cinnamon. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer covered for 20 minutes.
  3. Add the pears; cook covered for another 10 minutes. Drain off and throw away liquid. Let it cool.
  4. Bring water and milk to a boil and add the salt and oats. Reduce to medium heat and cook one minute stirring often.
  5. Serve up oatmeal and top with fruit mixture, yogurt and almond slivers. This recipe makes six servings.
