Fruited Oatmeal


I’m not sure where I got this recipe—so I apologize in advance for the plagiarism—but I wanted to share it because regular oatmeal is so blah for me, now. This is my favorite cold-weather breakfast! And it makes enough for at least 3 breakfasts (3-4 cups).


  • 1 3/4 cup water
  • salt
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup raisins (use organic, please)
  • 1/4 tsp coriander
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 1 cup chopped or grated apple or apple sauce (use organic, please) – I just chop up 1 whole apple

In a saucepan, bring the water and salt to a boil and stir in all the above. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes.

Then stir in:

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (use organic, please)
  • 2 tblsp ground flax seed

Cover and let sit for 2-3 minutes.
