Here is a tasty, fast, and healthy breakfast recipe that I make every week to have for busy mornings and hungry afternoons.
3 cups oatmeal
2 tbsp flaxseed meal (optional)
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cloves
3 medium apples
2 tbsp melted butter
1/2 cup cider or apple juice
1/2 cup milk, yogurt or water
2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 baking dish.
Stir together dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Quarter, core, and shred the apples. I toss them in my food processor for a few seconds until they are in small shreds, but not pureed. You could also use a grater. Stir the apples into the dry ingredients until they are evenly coated.
Melt the butter in a 2 cup measuring cup or 2 cup bowl, lightly beat in the eggs with a fork, then stir in the rest of the wet ingredients.
Pour the wet into the dry ingredients. Stir them together until evenly mixed. Spread batter into greased baking dish.
Bake for 20 - 25 minutes until the edges are golden brown and the center is set.
Cut into squares. They are best with coffee or tea and will keep for a week if stored in the refrigerator.
