Quick Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

I use to buy instant flavored packets of oatmeal. 
Now I prefer to make my own with whole ingredients.

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.

1/2 c organic rolled oats
1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
1 Tbsp chopped walnuts
1/2 apple, cubed
1 date, chopped
sea salt, to taste
ground cinnamon
1 tsp flaxseed oil

1. Bring pot of water to a boil. (or boil in microwave 😉)
2. Combine oats, syrup, nuts, apple, dates and salt in bowl.
3. Cover oats with hot water. Cover with plate until water absorbed.
4. Stir then add flaxseed oil and cinnamon.
