Healthy-Apple-Pie-Oatmeal

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes


Ingredients

1 tablespoon reduced-fat butter or Smart Balance Light

1½ cups apples, peeled and chopped, such as Gala, Fuji, Honeycrisp

2 teaspoons cinnamon

2 packages Truvia, Stevia, Splenda or your favorite sugar substitute, see shopping tip

3 tablespoons water

1 cup old fashioned rolled oatmeal, such as Quaker’s Old Fashioned Rolled Oats

1¾ cups water

⅓-½ cup fat-free milk, to taste

1 package Truvia, Stevia, Splenda or your favorite sugar substitute, see shopping tip

¼ teaspoon cinnamon


Instructions

1. In a small nonstick pan, melt butter.  Stir in apples, cinnamon and sugar substitute. Add 3 tablespoons water and mix well.  Cook over medium-low heat, string often until apples are softened, about 10 minutes.

2. In the meantime, cook oatmeal according to package directions but no need to add salt.

3. When apples are ready, mix into cooked oatmeal.  Stir in milk, ¼ teaspoon cinnamon and 1 package sugar substitute.  Continue to cook on low heat until hot.

Makes 2 servings (each serving, 1⅓ cups)


Healthy Benefits

There is 25 years of clinical proof to show that the soluble fiber in rolled oats can help lower cholesterol, which has obvious benefits for the heart.

Research has linked cinnamon with helping to reduced blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels in people with type-2 diabetes.

Apples are loaded with fiber and contain both vitamins A and C.


Shopping Tip

Truvia (stevia) is my favorite sugar substitute. It’s all natural and comes from the stevia plant. You’ll find it in most supermarkets in the baking aisle where sugar and other sugar substitutes are displayed.
