An early-morning breakfast needs to be fresh and calming. This is the meal that will set your tone for the day. By keeping everything easy, you allow yourself to enjoy the first few hours of the day.
Oatmeal with Apples and Cinnamon
- 1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal, dry
- 2-3 cups water
- pinch of salt
- 1 medium apple, cubed
- 1/3 cup almond milk, 2% milk or cream
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- pinch of cardamom
- 1-2 tsp honey
- berries for serving (optional)
- pistachio nuts for serving (optional)
In a saucepan over high heat, bring the water to a boil. Add the salt. Stirring continuously to prevent lumps from forming, add the oatmeal.
Reduce the heat to very low, add the apple cubes, cardamom and cinnamon, cover the pan and cook until the oatmeal is thick and creamy, stirring occasionally. Finish cooking by adding milk or cream and honey. Stir well. Serve immediately with berries and crushed pistachio nuts. Drizzle more honey if you like.

I'm not an oatmeal fan…when I first came to the US, my host family gave me oatmeal and I just couldn't eat! Even now I have trouble eating it… It took a long time to give a try on oatmeal cookies too (which I love very much now). You made it look so delicious here… 😉
