Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Apples are naturally sweet, helping to curb our cravings for sweets in a natural way. They have fiber and Vitamin C.  

Cinnamon has many beneficial properties, including a mild anti-inflammatory effect, anti-microbial properties (helps stop the growth of bacteria as well as fungi), better blood sugar control, the odor boosts brain activity, and is an excellent source of manganese. 

1/3 cup rolled oats (or steel cut oats*) 
2/3 cup liquid (1 cup liquid for steed cut oats*) 
½ an apple cut into small pieces 
½ tsp. cinnamon 
Dash of salt 

1. Add all ingredients to a small pot  
2. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer and cook until soft, about 5 to 7 minutes (about 20 minutes for steel cut oats*) 

*Steel Cut Oats are a much heartier cereal. They have more fiber nutrients. They have a wonderful, chewy texture and you will stay full longer when you eat steel cut oats.
