Oatmeal by my mom. Great warm out of the pan; DELICIOUS cold, the next day.
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened pecan milk (I made mine but you can use store bought almond milk or milk of your choice)
  • ⅜ teaspoon stevia (about 1½ tablespoon regular sugar)
  • 1 cup green apple, cubed
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  1. Boil 2 cups water with cinnamon stick in a medium sauce pan.
  2. Once boiling add oats and stevia (or sugar) and decrease heat to low. Let sit for 1 minute then add pecan milk, mix for about a minute, add apples, turn off heat and cover.
  3. Let sit, covered, for 10 minutes.
  4. Serve and sprinkle with raisins, dried pineapple or goji berries. We topped it with goji berries, chopped pecans and chia seeds.
I don't usually use stevia - but I wanted to keep true to my mom's recipe. Feel free to replace with sweetener of your choice.
Don't replace cinnamon stick with cinnamon powder. It makes all the difference!
You can make homemade pecan milk by soaking pecans in water overnight, straining them then blending them in a power blender with water and a pinch of salt. Strain and voila.
