Autumn Oatmeal

Time to share a recipe again! It is just so utterly scrumptious I couldn't help it, despite the fact that it's a cold, blizzardy February day instead of Autumn, like the recipe's name suggests.

My parents invented this recipe as a sweet but not sugary vegan breakfast, extremely innovative (and extra yummy) in that they cook the oatmeal in apple juice instead of water or milk.

They haven't written it down, however, so now it's my turn to share this deliciousness with the rest of the world. And yes, I took this photo of our breakfast this morning!

Autumn Oatmeal

1-3/4 cups 100% Apple Juice (not from concentrate)
1 cup Oatmeal (quick-cooking OR regular)
1 apple, Gala or Macintosh
1/2 cup raisins
1 tsp cinnamon
a dash of nutmeg

In a medium pot, bring apple juice to a boil. Core and chop apple, then add it along with the rest of the ingredients to the pot. Cook for the recommended amount of time for your oatmeal type. (I used quick-cooking oats, so one minute). Serve immediately. Makes 2 generous servings. Recipe may be doubled (or tripled, or...)!
