Wild Oats and Fruit

Contributed by Bertie B.


Steal cut oats are the best
Dried apricot
Diced apple
Wheat germ
Chopped walnuts or almonds


Just follow directions on the package, then I throw in all kinds of different things to make it even more heart healthy. I’ll cut up little pieces of dried apricots and cook it with the oats… maybe 12 of them for a serving of four. I’ll often add just a few pieces of cut up apple and maybe 3/4 of C. of raisins. After it’s all done and in my bowl.. I’ll add 1T ground flaxseed, 1T wheat germ, a fist full of chopped up walnuts or slivered almonds, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and then 1t blueberries. The blueberries sweeten the oatmeal enough or a spoonful of honey – so you don’t need any sugar.
