I make this cereal the night before we want to eat it, so the oats have time to soften and the flavors can blend. It's really easy to make, and so fresh, light, and delicious! If making this for one person, the recipe is easily cut in half, though leftovers will keep fine for a couple of days in the fridge.
2 apples, cubed
2 t lemon juice
1/2 c thick cut oats
1/2 c raisins, currants, goji berries, or a combination
2 t honey or agave (optional)
1/4 t cinnamon
1/8 t sea salt
|Processing the apples with lemon juice keep them from oxidizing|
Stir apples together with everything else. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight to soften the oats and mingle the flavors.
Serve alone, or try it with sliced bananas, milk, kefir, or yogurt.
I don't think this recipe is really picky about which apples you use. I generally buy whatever interesting variety is cheapest: gala, cameo, pink lady, honeycrisp, or braeburn. The lemon keeps the apples from turning brown during the long soaking.
This is really a great, healthy breakfast or snack. My son says it's better than boxed cereal, which we've stopped getting in favor of more cost effective and nutritious choices.
