Recipes Cran-Apple Oatmeal (Vegetarian, Breakfast)

Number of Servings

    2 cups fat-free or 2% milk
    1/3 cup dried cranberries (Craisins)
    1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats, uncooked
    1 chopped apple
    2 packets Sweet 'n Low or 3 packets Equal sweetener
    1/2 tsp. vanilla


Combine milk, cranberries, cinnamon and salt in medium saucepan. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add oats and apple. Simmer, uncovered, 5 to 6 minutes for old-fashioned oats OR 1 to 2 minutes for quick oats, stirring occasionally until most of liquid has been absorbed. Remove form heat. Stir in sweetener and vanilla. I eat one helping, and save the other one for the next day; it reheats perfectly in the microwave.
