This is a wonderful alternative to sugar-laden, artificially flavored instant oatmeals. The recipe calls for good old-fashioned rolled oats, not the quick cooking kind. They taste better, are more nutritious, and they take only a few minutes longer to fix.

Ingredients
1 cup apple juice
1 cup water
1 medium apple, cored and chopped ( I take the skin off) 
1 cup uncooked old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
Slivered almonds (omit for younger children)

The Process
In a medium saucepan, bring apple juice, water, and chopped apple to a boil over medium high heat. Stir in oats, raisins, cinnamon, and salt until well blended. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 5-6 minutes or until thick, stirring occasionally. Spoon into bowls and top with slivered almonds.

I've been making oatmeal for Evelyn lately. I put 1/4 of oats and 1/2 cup of whole milk in a microwave-safe container. Cook in the microwave for 60-90 seconds (watching so that it doesn't boil over). Then I mix in pureed fruit of some kind - applesauce, bananas, pears... I still keep baby food on hand just for this! It's SO easy, and I like knowing she's getting dairy, whole grains AND a serving of fruit - with no added sugar - all in one easy meal.
