I wanted to share my everyday breakfast for a long time now. Since we are talking about whole grains this week, I thought this simple and humble breakfast of mine should be showcased for Day 7 of BM#14.
As is evident from the name, this is a quick and easy recipe and can be customized to individual preferences adding whatever flavors one might choose. This happens to be my personal favorite!
Initially we used to get the instant oatmeal packets in various flavors and later on realized that we were loading up on unnecessary sugar. So found this simple solution to enjoy my favorite breakfast with the goodness of oats and apples. :)
Note that this can be made on the stove top (just cook on the stove top until done takes about 7-8 min under constant supervision) as well but I choose the easier and faster way.
Before the easy-breezy recipe, take a peek at what I have posted for the past week.
