I love this Quick Date Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal recipe from Alicia Silverstone’s book The Kind Diet. I used this book when I went Vegan for Lent back in 2012.
I enjoy a bowl of warm oatmeal on a frigid winter morning. I use to buy instant flavored packets of oatmeal. Now I prefer to make my own with whole ingredients.
Quick Date Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
1/2 c organic rolled oats
1/2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
1 Tbsp chopped walnuts
1/2 apple, cubed
1 date, chopped
sea salt, to taste
1 tsp flaxseed oil
Bring pot of water to a boil.
Combine oats, syrup,nuts, apple, dates and salt in bowl. Cover oats with hot water. Cover with plate until water absorbed. Stir then add flaxseed oil and cinnamon. Enjoy!
